It’s not the same as it ever was when Grammy Award–winning singer-songwriter Angelique Kidjo reimagines Talking Heads’ groundbreaking album Remain in Light. Influenced by Afrobeat king Fela Kuti, the 1980 record mixed African percussion, funk, synth, and rock. Tonight, Benin-born superstar Kidjo brings the music full circle, reinterpreting the entire album with her full band. Ibibio Sound Machine, an eight-piece band led by English-Nigerian singer Eno Williams, kicks off the evening with its high-spirited mix of Afrobeat, club music, and funk.
