The African superstar Angélique Kidjo, named 'Africa's most important diva' by Time Magazine, is coming to Eindhoven with a grand symphony orchestra. In addition to her own hits, she will also perform a short song cycle by Philip Glass, the famous American composer who has written the piece especially for her.

De West-Afrikaanse zangeres bewijst al meer dan 25 jaar één van de grote smaakmakers in de wereldmuziek te zijn. Zij verwerkt de liefde voor haar moederland Benin met passie en gedrevenheid in haar muziek. Kidjo werkte samen met grote artiesten als Alicia Keys, Santana, Peter Gabriel en Bono en weet als geen andere westerse pop, Afrikaanse muziek en nu dus ook orkestrale klanken samen te smelten tot een kleurrijk swingend geheel. Naast haar eigen hits brengt ze ook een korte liedcyclus van Philip Glass, die de beroemde Amerikaanse componist speciaal voor haar schreef.
