Angélique Kidjo‘s latest project; her reinterpretation of the classic Talking Heads album‘Remain In Light’ – showcases thrilling 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 reinvents them with electrifying rhythms, African guitars, and layered backing vocals. The London show coincides with the launch date of the album and is not to be missed.
‘Angélique’s cover has a special meaning…This should be exciting! Angélique is an incredible performer.’ (David Byrne)
‘Kidjo takes the African elements that David Byrne and Brian Eno explored on ‘Remain in Light’ and cranks them up to 11, giving the songs a almost frenetic drive that makes even the most uncoordinated among us (me, too) want to dance.’ (NoDepression outstanding performance of the year) Video link here
