Beninese diva Angélique Kidjo reimagines iconic Talking Heads disc 'Remain in Light'

Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter. Tireless activist. A firecracker who sets global stages alight. Beninese powerhouse diva Angélique Kidjo is all these things and for her latest project the chanteuse, dubbed "the Queen of African music", has given new life to the classic Talking Heads album "Remain in Light". The groundbreaking 1980 record - with its rich tapestry of Afrobeat-inspired polyrhythms - still reverberates today.
