This is the last album of the trilogy ("Oremi", "Black Ivory Soul" and "Oyaya") that the "African Diva" started in 1998, exploring the African roots of the music of the Americas. In "Oyaya" (that means "Joy" in the Yoruba language), Angélique Kidjo mixes Latin and Caribbean music with African guitars. The French Guyanese Henri Salvador, who was 86 at the time of the recording, joined Angélique on the touching song "Le Monde Comme un Bébé". This french (extended) version, includes a bonus 14th track. Enjoy a really wonderful ethnic album, with diverse musical influences.

Angelique Kidjo - Keep On Moving: The Best Of (2001)
Soul, Funk, Afro-pop, World | MP3 320 kbps CBR | Artworks | 74 min | 205 MB
Label: Wrasse Records | Rel: 2001

The Benin-born, Paris-based singer Angélique Kidjo has become the most popular African female artist on the world-music scene. This compilation contains 18 tracks from her five CDs released between 1990 and 1998. An electrifying performer fluent in French, English-jazz vocalese, and her country's traditional zilin vocal techniques, Kidjo often sings in her native Fon/Yoruba language. Along with her husband, bassist/producer Jean Hebral, Kidjo conjures up a zesty mix of funk, Latin, jazz, gospel, Caribbean zouk, Congolese rumba, and Afropop grooves. Kidjo covers a lot of ground--from Afro-pulsed renditions of Jimi Hendrix's "Voodoo Child (Slight Return)" to her indigenous take on George Gershwin's "Summertime." The rising hip-hop/gospel diva Kelly Price lends her sanctified sound to "Open Your Eyes," and Carlos Santana's bluesy guitar lines illuminate "Naima." Details

The joyous fusion of funky African rhythms and vocals with the unpredictable spontaneity of jazz characterizes the sound of Pili Pili, not only the most exotic but also the most popular result of Jasper Van't Hof's continuing quest for fresh and entertaining forms of music expression. … Angélique Kidjo was perfectly at home with this funky musical fusion and joined the group in 1984 as their lead singer. …

Les Amazones d'Afrique - République Amazone (2017)
MP3 CBR 320 kbps | 00:55:05 | 129 Mb
Electronic, Funk, Dub, World, Female Vocal | Label: Real World Records

Les Amazones d'Afrique are an all-female collective of west African musicians, campaigning for gender equality. They have been described as a supergroup, and the characterisation seems apt. Angélique Kidjo, Kandia Kouyaté, Mamani Keita, Mariam Doumbia, Mariam Koné, Massan Coulibaly, Mouneissa Tandina, Nneka, Pamela Badjogo and Rokia Koné hold a strong pedigree, and it's a rare opportunity to witness such a collaboration; the real sound of contemporary Africa. République Amazone is the sound of the diaspora of African music returning home, a reclaiming outside of genre and time. As much at home on the dancefloors of east London, or as part of an Awesome Tapes from Africa festival set in Croatia, as it would be ringing out of a cement brick house in Bamako, it showcases the sparkling range and versatility of its songstresses.

Few can match drummer Daniel Freedman when it comes to pan-stylistic jazz presentations that cut across cultural lines. This lifelong New Yorker has found a way to bridge sonic worlds, erase boundary lines, and merge various musical languages in masterful fashion in his own work and in support of others. It's no wonder why the best of the best—the one and only Sting, West African superstar Angelique Kidjo, and Israeli clarinet queen Anat Cohen, to mention three—have called on Freedman. He isn't nearly as well-known as he should be at this point, due in no small part to the fact that his sideman duties take up much of his time, but with each successive release under his own name he furthers his reputation as one of the most open-minded drummer-leaders on record.

In 2005, Senegalese superstar Youssou N'Dour helped organize a concert in Dakar, Senegal, to generate support in the fight against malaria, a disease that continues to plague much of Africa. The Roll Back Malaria concert showcased some of the finest musicians in Northwest Africa, performing in a wonderful if small cross section of musical styles from the vast African continent.
Some common elements in all the performances were multiple percussionists (this being Africa, after all), and an aural fabric of ostinatos, usually played by one or more electric guitars.
