World Music Portraits: Angelique Kidjo

2003 NR

Join West African musician Angelique Kidjo as she returns to her native Benin for the first time in 13 years. The journey is equal parts homecoming, cultural tour and concert film as Kidjo discusses her heritage and prepares for her comeback show. Reunions with her mentors and visits to a slave port and voodoo priests are all reflected in the way Kidjo blends traditional African music, soul, jazz, funk and salsa in the live performance.
