Festival of Voice 2018, the biennial arts festival is back for its second instalment, and they’re celebrating culture and the voice during 11 days from 7th -17th of June across Cardiff with numerous artists, events and community projects.
Theatre, talks, unique collaborations, one-off events, contemporary music such as Patti Smith, Elvis Costello, the brand new collaboration —LUMP— and that is just the beginning!
The incredible performer Angélique Kidjo is set to show us her magnificent voice through familiar melodies reworked into a spectacular genre-bending presentation.
Angélique Kidjo's latest project; her reinterpretation of the classic Talking Heads album Remain In Light - showcases incredible new arrangements of the iconic songs. She takes the classics such as Crosseyed and Painless, Once in a Lifetime, and Born Under Punches (The Heat Goes On) and reinterprets them with electrifying rhythms, African guitars, and layered backing vocals.
Her striking voice, stage presence and fluency in multiple cultures and 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.
