Instantaneous!

Lucky me! I was driving to work this week and listening to NPR. They had a feature on this artist who is originally from Benin, Africa. Her name is Angelique Kidjo. She has a new album out called Oyo. Her singing is fabulous and she sounded like a really cool person. This album is songs that she remembered from when she was growing up. I am love! Love her sound, style, and everything. The album is very uplifting and gorgeous. Click on her name (above) and go to an Amazon page where you can hear a sample of some of her songs. I am sure I am going to be exploring her other work soon. I get so excited when I make a musical "discovery!" I titled this post "Instantaneous" because the minute I heard this music it seemed like it was already a part of me. Love it!

There's nothing like NPR, is there? I could just sit and listen to Scott Simon all day. His voice is so soothing. Have you signed up for their music email yet? It's like their weekly greatest hits of music coverage. It's fantastic!
