Angélique Kidjo

In a special edition of The Strand, Audrey Brown talks to Angélique Kidjo – often heralded as Africa’s première diva – about her singing, her new album collaborating with Diane Reeves and Branford Marsalis and about her philanthropic work.

Plus of course we hear plenty of the magnificent sound of Kidjo’s singing from Spirit Rising.
