Featuring a mix of American, European and African musical stylings, the latest show at Carver Community Cultural Center is a must-see for anyone interested in modern world music! On Saturday, June 1st, the Carver will host none other than Angélique Kidjo, beginning at 8:00 p.m. Be sure to check it out this weekend!

Three-time Grammy Award winner Angélique Kidjo is one of the greatest artists in international music today, a creative force with thirteen albums to her name. As a performer, her striking voice, stage presence and fluency in multiple languages have won respect from her peers and expanded her following across national borders. Kidjo has cross-pollinated the West African traditions of her childhood in Benin with elements of American R&B, funk and jazz, as well as influences from Europe and Latin America.

International publications rave about the singer’s talent and cultural significance. Time Magazine has called Angélique “Africa’s premier diva.” Forbes Magazine has ranked her as the first woman in their list of the Most Powerful Celebrities in Africa. BBC has included her in its list of the continent’s 50 most iconic figures, and in 2011 The Guardian listed her as one of their Top 100 Most Inspiring Women in the World.

Make plans now to see Africa’s number one entertainer when she performs live in San Antonio! Tickets to see Angélique Kidjo range from $19 to $39. The performance is open to audiences of all ages. For more information or to purchase tickets, visit www.thecarver.org.
