Now with a monumental 14 albums under her belt Kidjo has cemented herself as one of the leading voices representing her continent on the planet. Her upcoming album Mother Nature continues to be a celebration of her home. The ethos of approaching this new LP was re-connecting with a new wave of young African artists making a name for themselves on the international scene.
