In her newest project, Angelique Kidjo reinterprets The Talking Heads’ classic album, Remain in Light (1980), adding electrifying rhythms, African guitars, and layered backing vocals. Cross-pollinating the West African traditions of her childhood in Benin with elements of American R&B, funk, and jazz, Kidjo is nothing short of exhilarating and transcendent. Performing songs from Remain in Light, as well as originals, she is joined by renowned Afrobeat artist Femi Kuti and The Positive Force whose shows are filled with “energetic big-band arrangements…and Femi out front wailing from the heart and giving hope to the voiceless” (The Boston Globe).
