Oremi (1998)
A Thing Of Rare Beauty

Arguably Angelique Kidjo’s finest example of Africanized groove-oriented pop. The All Music Guide calls this album “sexy, thrilling, and powerful.” Listen to her brilliant version of Jimi Hendrix’s “Voodoo Child (Slight Return)” below and you’ll hear a master vocalist and vocal arranger at work. The rest of the Oremi is just as good. An outstanding singer and artist at her peak. Welcome to the next world, and don’t be late.

    Don't like all of her music, but she's a force of nature and a singular talent. I was looking for that 'one' AK record; good commentary. Thanks a lot.
