Angelique Kidjo and Friends: Spirit Rising

Episode 1 of 1

Grammy winning recording artist Angelique Kidjo pays tribute to her West African homeland and the richness and beauty of its culture in the concert special, ANGELIQUE KIDJO AND FRIENDS: SPIRIT RISING. Through her songs, Kidjo communicates the universal spirit and appeal of African music. Kidjo performs genre-spanning duets - from Broadway show tunes and rock classics to a Bob Marley reggae song and a Swahili love ballad - with a diverse group of guest artists, including pop-opera star Josh Groban, jazz singer Dianne Reeves, saxophonist Branford Marsalis and Ezra Koenig, frontman for the indie-rock band Vampire Weekend. This concert special also features Kidjo's favorite gospel choir and dancers from the Broadway hit FELA!.
