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!
