Angélique Kidjo was a most deserving recipient of this year´s prestigious Polar Music Prize, and coincidentally, in the same year as she marks 40 years as a highly influential artist. Talking of prizes…her latest album “Mother Nature” received a Grammy award for best global music. It is her “Mother Nature” tour which we are delighted to be welcoming to Stavanger. Kidjo is one of the most extraordinary artists to have graced the music world over the past few decades, a forward-looking and creative thinker – an artist who wishes to explore the links between different musical cultures. She is the Queen of afro-pop and has been featured by the BBC on their list of Africa´s most iconic individuals. First and foremost, however, she is an artist with an important message – come and hear it at Stavanger Konserthus on Wednesday, 8th. May.
