KQED 9: Thu, Mar 1, 2012 -- 9:30 PM
Grammy winning recording artist Angelique Kidjo pays tribute to her West African homeland and the richness and beauty of its culture in this concert special. Through her songs, Kidjo communicates the universal spirit and appeal of African music. She 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!
