Angélique Kidjo

Bio

Angélique Kpasseloko Hinto Hounsinou Kandjo Manta Zogbin Kidjo, née le 14 juillet 1960 à Cotonou (Bénin) et appelée Angélique Kidjo, est une chanteuse béninoise qui réside à New York (États-Unis).

Elle est connue pour la diversité de ses influences musicales, l'originalité de ses clips et son engagement humanitaire comme Ambassadrice de Bonne Volonté de l'UNICEF. Parmi ses succès, on trouve les chansons Agolo, We We, Adouma, Wombo Lombo, Afirika et Batonga.

La BBC l'a incluse dans sa liste des 50 icônes du continent africain. Time Magazine l'a appelée la « première diva africaine » et elle fait partie de la liste établie par The Guardian des 100 femmes les plus influentes au monde. Forbes magazine la fait figurer comme la première femme dans la liste des 40 célébrités les plus importantes d'Afrique. Le Daily Telegraph la décrit en 2012, lors des Jeux olympiques de Londres, comme la « reine incontestée de la musique africaine ».

Ses influences musicales sont la pop africaine, la musique des Caraïbes, le zouk, la rumba congolaise, le jazz, le gospel, et différents styles de musique latine. Elle est inspirée aussi par les artistes qui ont bercé son enfance : Bella Bellow, James Brown, Aretha Franklin, Jimi Hendrix, Miriam Makeba et Carlos Santana.

Angélique Kidjo a enregistré des versions africaines de Summertime de Gerswhin, du Boléro de Ravel, de Voodoo Chile de Jimi Hendrix. Elle a également collaboré avec de nombreux artistes, notamment Carlos Santana, Alicia Keys, Peter Gabriel, Herbie Hancock, Branford Marsalis, John Legend, Bono, Philip Glass, Josh Groban, Dianne Reeves, Vampire Weekend, Dr. John, Dave Matthews et Cassandra Wilson.

Elle parle couramment le fon, le français, le yoruba le mina et l'anglais. Elle chante dans ces cinq langues. Sa chanson Malaika, de l'album Logozo, est en swahili. Elle utilise souvent la technique vocale Zilin.

Angélique Kidjo compte de nombreuses distinction à son actif, dont 3 Grammy Awards (2007, 2008 et 2015).

Pretty (sorti en Afrique uniquement en 1981), Parakou (1990), Logozo (1991), Ayé (1994), Fifa (1996), Oremi (1998), Keep On Moving: The Best Of Angelique Kidjo (2001, Black Ivory Soul (2002), Oyaya !
