Grammy Award-winning singer/songwriter Angelique Kidjo performs songs from her forthcoming album Eve at the Southbank Centre.

Hailed as ‘the undisputed queen of African music’, Angelique Kidjo has long been making waves in the jazz and pop worlds, collaborating with the likes of Carlos Santana, Josh Groban, Peter Gabriel, Branford Marsalis, and Alicia Keys.

Dedicated to the women of Africa, Eve fuses Kidjo’s African-influenced soulful singing with musical styles from across the globe.

“Angelique Kidjo blazes a trail for modern African women…….set out in her ace new album”  – Sunday Times

“Eve finds her singing in  Fon, Yoruba, Goun and Mina languages and dedicating her rich songs to the women of Africa…..a vivid advert for Kidjo’s corner of West Africa”  – Mail in Sunday (4 stars)

…Kidjo is in scintillating form – her trademark vocals, with their declamatory edge, are underpinned by some percolating, percussion-driven, rhythm tracks that exude an unbridled sense of celebratory joie de vivre”  - Mojo

Tickets £25-30 via Southbank Centre
