Angélique Kidjo returns to Tucson as one of the most iconic and respected artists in international music today, the opportunity to see her perform in the intimate setting of the Rialto Theatre is not to be missed.

“Kidjo is probably Africa’s most widely respected international vocalist, and one of its hungriest synthesizers of culture and ideas.”

The New York Times

With a striking voice, radiant energy, and messages of unity and healing, four-time Grammy Award winner Angélique Kidjo is a chart-topping world music superstar who blends the West African traditions of her childhood with R&B, funk, and jazz.

Time Magazine calls Angélique Kidjo, “Africa’s premier diva” and named her one of their 100 Most Influential People in September of 2021. “The grace she exudes toward her fellow creators, and to humankind, is a reflection of her vibrancy, kindness, and generosity. Angélique is as real as they come,” says Alicia Keys, in her introduction of Kidjo to the list. The acknowledgment is the latest in a series of major accolades and appearances in what has been a tremendous year for this “towering figure of cross-cultural music” (New Yorker).

Kidjo’s reinterpretations rearrange the molecules of songs that many of us know by heart … the results are glorious.

NPR Music

Widely recognized as the “Queen of African Music,” she has collaborated with everyone from Alicia Keys to Bono to Philip Glass. In addition to winning four Grammy Awards for her masterful vocal prowess and innovative explorations of cross-cultural musical genres, she has also proven a tireless advocate for women and children in her native home of Benin and across Africa, serving as both an OXFAM and UNICEF goodwill ambassador.
