Brighton Festival : Angelique Kidjo + Josephine Oniyama
Angélique Kidjo embodies the spirit of Africa. The sheer dynamism of her music and her activism has made her the voice of a continent, seen her named by The Guardian as one of the most inspiring women in the world, and earned her the accolade of Africa’s premiere diva from Time Magazine.
The Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter brings an energising selection to Brighton for this world-music highlight, delivered with her trademark power and immediacy.
This event takes place at Brighton Dome, which has achieved Bronze Status for disabled access from Attitude Is Everything.

Kidjo's internationally acclaimed repertoire includes collaborations with various recording artists such as Carlos Santana, Peter Gabriel, Alicia Keys, Josh Groban, Branford Marsalis, Joss Stone, and many more.
