Angélique Kidjo - 40th Anniversary Live Concert Stream

A journey through 40 years of music at the Royal Albert Hall - as part of the EFG London Jazz Festival

Five-time Grammy winner Angélique Kidjo, named by TIME magazine as ‘Africa’s premier diva’, graced the Royal Albert Hall on 17 November 2023 to spectacularly kick off her highly anticipated 2023 - 2024 world tour. The high-energy performance was a celebration of Kidjo’s unbelievable 40-year career and featured special guests, including Lebanese trumpeter Ibrahim Maalouf, Senegalese superstar Youssou N’Dour, Afropop pioneer Stonebwoy, and the UK’s very own Laura Mvula.  

The performance, available to stream in cinematic quality from 12 December 2023, was accompanied by the Chineke! Orchestra and conducted by Chris Cameron, for an extravaganza of astounding vocals, unmatched musicality and electric performances. Kidjo promises a night to remember – she is known worldwide for merging the West African traditions of her childhood with American R&B, funk and jazz, alongside influences from Europe and Latin America. 

Available in 4K UHD with Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos technologies. The show can be streamed on-demand with unlimited replays for 2 years through the On Air website, mobile and TV apps.  

The show will be available to watch in cinematic quality from 12 December 2023 – fans worldwide can experience the magic of one of London’s most iconic venues right at home.
