One beautiful topic I haven’t yet discussed in my blog is music. I realize more and more how it has become such an important part of my life. I am especially excited right now, as this Friday I am going to see Angelique Kidjo, one of my very favorite performers, at Town Hall. I had the opportunity of seeing her at Carnegie Hall last year, and at City Winery earlier this year where I had the privilege of meeting her….. she was very patient with me as I went on and on about how much I loved her.
I first was introducted to Angelique Kidjo’s music on a Hotel Costes CD by in-house DJ Stephane Pompougnac. I picked her out, bought a CD and was hooked.
Her voice is powerful and clear, perfectly beautiful. When you learn more about her and her work helping young woman in Africa with education and her general outlook on humantiy you see another layer of beautiful.
If there are tickets at Town Hall, grab them and just TRY NOT TO DANCE………ITS IMPOSSIBLE!!!!! You will dance your ass off ( sorry sometimes there doesn’t seem to be another way to say things) her concerts are sheer joy.
A few places to get a taste of her music
and for more immediate gratification
