For 30 years, Angélique Kidjo has been recognised all over the world for her music, both for her enormous successes and her all-round social commitment. She has demonstrated that she can not only move mountains, she can even make them dance. Nothing can stop her: certainly not a pandemic. This album was written during those long months of lockdown when the world's musicians stopped their touring. But none of that gloom makes it into her record. Mother Nature is a real vaccine against despair, the opposite of an inward-looking or fretful album. From the first moments of Choose Love, Angélique Kidjo's voice explodes with a wild energy. And it's catching. Mother Nature is a big, sunny party album, with a long list of VIP guests from the world of Afropop, including Burna Boy, Sampa the Great, EarthGang, Yemi Alade, M, Salif Keita and guitarist Lionel Loueke. The record enjoys an inventive contemporary electro production, which gives pride of place to the lead and backing vocals. In this way, Angélique Kidjo honours an African musical history which is in perpetual flux. Her revisiting of Independence Chacha, an old political/celebratory anthem by the Congolese Grand Kalle, could well become the hit of summer 2021, the one song that makes you want to go out, scream, dance in the rain, sing in the sun and not worry about the neighbours. As its title suggests, the theme of this album is the natural world, and Angélique Kidjo most certainly is a force of nature. © Stéphane Deschamps / Qobuz

Album review

For 30 years, Angélique Kidjo has been recognised all over the world for her music, both for her enormous successes and her all-round social commitment. She has demonstrated that she can not only move mountains, she can even make them dance. Nothing can stop her: certainly not a pandemic. This album was written during those long months of lockdown when the world's musicians stopped their touring. But none of that gloom makes it into her record. Mother Nature is a real vaccine against despair, the opposite of an inward-looking or fretful album. From the first moments of Choose Love, Angélique Kidjo's voice explodes with a wild energy. And it's catching. Mother Nature is a big, sunny party album, with a long list of VIP guests from the world of Afropop, including Burna Boy, Sampa the Great, EarthGang, Yemi Alade, M, Salif Keita and guitarist Lionel Loueke.
