Annie O Presents: Angelique Kidjo

New York-Standard Sounds

Angelique Kidjo’s next album, due April 19, will be “Celia,” a tribute to the Afro-Cuban singer Celia Cruz. “Quimbara,” the first cover, was one of Cruz’s signature songs in the 1970s. "Kidjo reconnects the salsa original to West Africa, layering the song with a tumbling six-beat rhythm, a brass-band undertow and a tangle of scurrying guitar lines while she belts with enough grit to rival Cruz herself.” - The New York Times. Annie O is welcoming Angelique back to Standard Sounds at TOTS, on April 16.
