Released:
Label: 429 Records
The Benin-born popular interpreter and perennial Grammy favorite shares a bill with the 100-piece Luxembourg Philharmonic, and the result is what you might expect: Kidjo With Strings. At times, the full orchestra threatens to overwhelm some of the project's supporting players, like fellow Beninese guitarist Lionel Loueke or jazz bassist Christian McBride. But they can't drown out Kidjo, who is in fine vocal form throughout, crooning and growling her way through 11 classic songs selected from her back catalog, including an aching "Samba Pa Ti" and famed Swahili love song "Malaika."
