Angélique Kidjo, the globe-circling singer-songwriter and “premier diva,” per TIME magazine, of African music, has re-envisioned Remain in Light, the landmark Talking Heads album from 1980. The classic record uses sampled and looped grooves inspired by African artists like Fela Kuti, and Grammy- winning Kidjo says it’s “time to bring rock back to Africa.” On the same incredible ticket, Kuti’s son and musical heir, Femi Kuti, will perform with his band, the Positive Force. The younger Kuti blends political messages with traditional Nigerian rhythms, Afrobeat, American soul and smooth funk.
