Angelique Kidjo, the four-time Grammy-nominated, much-celebrated singer, composer, and performer, began in the Beninese port village of Cotonou, where she launched her career at the age of six.
With DJIN DJIN (pronounced “gin gin”), Angelique Kidjo returns to the soul of Benin – and, for the first time, shares it with a cast of all-star guests, in a marriage of cultures that has significance far beyond music alone.
Inspired by the traditions and culture of Kidjo’s native Benin in West Africa, the title of the album refers to the sound of the bell that greets the beginning of a new day for Africa.
