“Angélique Kidjo gets [the Hong Kong] Cultural Centre crowd on their feet […] singing along and dancing in the aisles – and eventually up on stage”South China Morning Post

Queen of African music and three-time Grammy Award winner

A mega-sensational concert starring one music legend paying tribute to three more! Angélique Kidjo, recognised by Time magazine as “Africa’s premier diva”, made her début in Hong Kong in 2015. Then, her phenomenal voice, stage presence and energy left the rapturous audience wanting more. Now, the superstar is set to return. For her second appearance, she salutes the inspirational genius of a trio of African and Latin American divas: Celia Cruz, Miriam Makeba, and Nina Simone. Each had their own distinctive style, which Kidjo fuses with her own to provide an unparalleled musical encounter that extols, elevates, and exhilarates.

Born in Benin in West Africa, Kidjo started performing on stage at the age of six. Her music blends African pop, Caribbean zouk, Congolese rumba, jazz, gospel and Latin styles. She has received numerous honours and awards over her career, including being named one of the Top 100 Most Inspiring Women in the World by The Guardian. In 2016, just a year after collecting her second Grammy, she received a third for her SINGS album, recorded together with the Luxembourg Philharmonic Orchestra.

Don’t miss this opportunity to join the irrepressible diva for another scintillating showcase reaching fresh heights of artistic innovation!
