Reserves and Prices

For one night only, the incredible Angélique Kidjo returns to Adelaide for a concert sharing her new album, Mother Nature, supported by brilliant Noongar song-maker Maatakitj. 

Winner of five Grammy Awards and with 16 albums to her name, Angélique Kidjo’s striking voice and stage presence is matched by her ability to make connections across genres. Her latest album confronts pressing issues, such as racial inequity and the climate crisis, again proving her rare power to transform complex subject matter into music that is radiantly joyful. 

She is joined by Maatakitj, whose technicolour high energy dance tracks “dare to envisage future songlines that tell of a yet unknown path both corporeal and metaphysical” (The Australian). 

Join us for an evening of rapturous music brought to us by a charismatic performer hell-bent on leaving the world a better place for her presence. 


Quotes

The undisputed queen of African music.

Equal parts boisterous and soulful... Her music transcends mere danceability and instead possesses you with its rhythm.
