Angelique Kidjo’s to perform at The Ordway

Songstress, activist, ambassador and philanthropist, Angelique Kidjo, will grace Minnesota with another visit (aren’t we lucky!).  Her album Oyo, released exactly a year ago, has received a grammy nomination for Best Contemporary World Music Album.  Sounds like a concert you don’t want to miss.

Fun Fact: Angelique Kidjo’s full name is Angélique Kpasseloko Hinto Hounsinou Kango Manta Zogbin, which, roughly translated, means ‘the blood of a lantern will not light a spark’.

Here are some clips to enjoy, until you get to see her live on stage 🙂
