Kidjo‘s latest project; her reinterpretation of the classic Talking Heads album Remain In Light – showcases incredible new arrangements of the iconic songs. She takes the classics such as Crosseyed and Painless, Once in a Lifetime, and Born Under Punches (The Heat Goes On) and reinterprets them with electrifying rhythms, African guitars, and layered backing vocals.
As a performer, her striking voice, stage presence and fluency in multiple cultures and languages have won respect from her peers and expanded her following across national borders. Kidjo has cross-pollinated the West African traditions of her childhood in Benin with elements of American R&B, funk and jazz, as well as influences from Europe and Latin America. Get ready for an unforgettable performance of familiar melodies reworked into a spectacular genre-bending presentation. Book here. Dates: Saturday 9th June: 7pm Where: CARDIFF Wales Millennium Centre, Bute Place, Cardiff CF10 5A
