Nightlife Highlights: Angelique Kidjo 

Angelique Kidjo
  • Angelique Kidjo

February 13. Beninese vocalist Angelique Kidjo has been called "Africa's premier diva" by Time magazine. Her deeply soulful, passionately sung combination of traditional African and Latin styles and funk, reggae, samba, salsa, gospel, jazz, zouk, and other genres has made her a festival favorite around the globe, and especially in her adopted homeland of France. Fluent in English, French, and Yoruba in addition to her native Fon, she sings in all four languages and has collaborated with Herbie Hancock, Peter Gabriel, Phillip Glass, John Legend, Bono, Dr. John, the Kronos Quartet, and many others. Kidjo visits Mass MoCA this month for an intimate acoustic performance in the arts complex's Hunter Center. (Jason Walker sings soul and Gospel on February 20.) 8pm. $32, $39, $49. North Adams, Massachusetts. (413) 662-2111; Massmoca.org.
