AT THE VETS: FirstWorks presents Angélique Kidjo
THIS EVENT TAKES PLACE AT THE VETS LOCATED AT ONE AVENUE OF THE ARTS PROVIDENCE, RI
FirstWorks welcomes four-time Grammy Award winner Angélique Kidjo back to Providence for a concert featuring the high-octane numbers that have cemented her place on the international scene. Extolled as “Africa’s premier diva” by Time Magazine, Kidjo is recognized worldwide for her singular, extraordinary voice and diverse influences, ranging from Afropop to gospel, from Congolese rumba to rhythm and blues. Using joy and pride as transcendent tools of empowerment, she will share fan favorites along with new music from her recently released album, “Mother Nature.” Written and recorded while in quarantine during the COVID-19 pandemic, the album focuses on the pressing topics of environmental preservation and human rights. The result is a truly visionary body of work, rooted in a deep understanding of musical tradition yet endlessly forward-thinking and inventive.
