Angelique Kidjo Sings with the Orchestre Philharmonique Du Luxembourg. The visionary songwriter and vocalist teams with the 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. Backed by the sweeping grandeur of the 110 musician ensemble, the singer - drawing fresh, emotional power from her trademark guttural voice - re-imagines nine classic pieces from her 24 year discography and two new tunes (“Otishe,” “Mamae”) from the sessions of her 2014 Grammy nominated (Best World Music Album) masterwork Eve.
