Produced by Patrick Dillett (David Byrne, Fatboy Slim), Eve, named after her mother, is a joyous musical ode to the pride, beauty and strength of African women and their worldwide socio-cultural influence. The recording showcases Kidjo's extraordinary musical vision as realized by remarkable players as well as women's choirs from several African villages in Benin and Kenya singing in a wide array of native Beninese languages including Fon, Yoruba, Goun and Mina. Joining Kidjo is an exciting mix of new and well-known musicians including Dr. John, Rostamm Btmanglij (Vampire Weekend), The Kronos Quartet and the Orchestra Philharmonique du Luxumbourg
Sings by Angélique Kidjo( Recording )

5 editions published in 2015 in 4 languages and held by 346 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Continuing to embrace her long held belief that music is a "weapon of peace," Angelique Kidjo is rapidly closing in on a quarter century since her Island Records debut 'Logozo' reached #1 on the Billboard World Music chart. The success of that recording lit her path towards international superstardom as an artist/performer, which in turn opened opportunities for her global influence as a philanthropist, including her role as UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador. With each new recording and live performance, the multi-talented, Grammy Award winning native of Benin - called "Africa's premier diva" by Time magazine and named one of the Top 100 Inspiring Women in the World by The Guardian - feels a deep responsibility to build and transcend cultural bridges between her native Africa and the rest of the world. On her second, highly anticipated 429 Records recording 'Sings,' the visionary songwriter and vocalist teams with the ensemble's renowned conductor and composer Gast Waltzing to create an historic work that beautifully blends the classical music traditions of Europe and the powerful rhythmic excitement of the sounds of her native land
