Angélique Kidjo | Adelaide Festival 2024
For one night only, the incredible Angélique Kidjo returns to Adelaide for a concert sharing her new album, Mother Nature, alongside songs celebrating her 40-year career as one of Africa’s best-known artists. She’ll be supported on the night by brilliant Noongar song-maker Maatakitj.
As a performer, Angélique Kidjo’s striking voice and stage presence is matched by her ability to make connections across genres. Her music cross-pollinates the West African traditions of her childhood in Benin with elements of American R&B, funk and modal jazz, alongside influences from Europe and Latin America.
Forever a voice for change, Angélique Kidjo’s Mother Nature confronts such pressing issues as racial inequity and the climate crisis, again proving her rare power to transform complex subject matter into music that is radiantly joyful.
Join us for an evening of rapturous music brought to us by a charismatic performer hell-bent on leaving the world a better place for her presence.
