Her world-music albums have earned her multiple Grammys – no surprise, since to hear Angélique Kidjo’s voice is to set off on a sensory journey to far-off lands. Adventurous rhythms from Kidjo’s West African homeland of Benin feature in her very own «Summertime» interpretation along with spherical sounds from Philip Glass combined with an exceptional dance performance. Now the outstanding African-French artist and UNICEF ambassador, whose favourite instrument is the banjo, meets the Tonkunstler Orchestra and drapes her musical spectrum, ranging from jazz to Latin American beats, in powerful, stirring sounds. A cosmopolitan Plugged-In evening conducted by Gast Waltzing!
