Description

Five-time Grammy Award-winner Angélique Kidjo returns to the Royal Albert Hall for a celebration of her 40-year career, performing her greatest hits accompanied by the Chineke! Orchestra, conducted by Chris Cameron, and special guests including Grammy-nominated trumpeter Ibrahim Maalouf and Senegalese superstar Youssou N’Dour.

Part of the EFG London Jazz Festival, this concert will celebrate the career-spanning catalogue of one of Africa’s best-known artists, with TIME magazine describing her as ‘Africa’s premier diva’, and including her in their list of the 100 most influential people in the world in 2021.

Kidjo, who is also the recipient of this year’s prestigious Polar Music Prize, has become renowned for merging the West African traditions of her childhood with American R&B, funk and jazz, alongside influences from Europe and Latin America.

A UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador, she has appeared at the Hall twice before – at the 2019 BBC Proms and at a 2008 Stars of Africa fundraising concert. Throughout her career, she has collaborated with high-profile artists such as Sting, Philip Glass, Carlos Santana, Burna Boy, Alicia Keys, Joss Stone and Peter Gabriel, among many others.
