While her music is steeped in the tribal and pop rhythms of her West African homeland, Benin-born vocalist Kidjo effortlessly slides across musical boundaries—blending a variety of styles, from funk, salsa, jazz and rumba to souk and makossa.
An exhilarating performer, she has been embraced by the world artistic community, collaborating with international superstars Carlos Santana, Gilberto Gil and Dave Matthews. “Music is not only emotion and groove,” says Kidjo. “It’s something that speaks for a culture and its people.”
