To conclude our Threads of Africa celebration and the 20th anniversary summer concert series, the NCMA presents a free concert by Angélique Kidjo, hailed by Time magazine as “Africa’s premier diva.”

All tickets are general admission; tickets are FREE but required. This event will likely sell out, so reserve yours now.

Kidjo blends 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. A three-time Grammy winner, Kidjo is admired throughout the world.

Opening for Angélique Kidjo is Diali Cissokho, a griot born to a family of professional musicians in Senegal, who currently makes his home in North Carolina. Cissokho is a master of the kora, a traditional West African instrument with strings and a skin-and-gourd resonator. Cissokho and his band Diali Cissokho & Kaira Ba have created an electrifying style of West African dance music that has attracted a fervent following.
