Angelique Kidjo's OYO Hits Stores Today

Written By: MIM!—Exhale! After what seemed like an eternal holding pattern, today Angelique Kidjo's fans can finally enjoy the release OYO. On her new album, Kidjo revisits the music that was instrumental in her artistic formation in Benin, the country whose communist dictatorship she fled in the early ‘80s. Although OYO is primarily comprised of covers, the music is instantly recognizable as Kidjo’s: rhythm and blues, soul music, jazz, and Beninese melodies.
