- Program Description
Broadcast locally in June 2011, national pledge version broadcast in August 2011.
In this 90-minute special, taped at WGBH's studios in Brighton, Angelique Kidjo pays tribute to her homeland and the richness and beauty of African culture as she knew it growing up. With the help of an intimate group of guest artists, including longtime friends Josh Groban, Dianne Reeves, Branford Marsalis, and Ezra Koenig, Kidjo communicates loud and clear how African music, then and now, has retained a universal spirit and appeal. Kidjo also has help from her favorite gospel choir, and dancers from the Broadway hit FELA! during the special.
