About this Performance
It’s the return of the ultimate party-starters! Portland’s Pink Martini shakes up their cocktail of sounds sourced from the Jet Age. Take the colorful sambas of Brazil and the breezy chansons of Paris café culture, and spike with the groovy rhythms of mid-century Havana, and you’ve got one potent blend for a very cool Hollywood Bowl night.
Five-time Grammy Award winner Angélique Kidjo is an icon of African music, drawing together the sounds of her home country of Benin and West Africa with elements of American R&B, funk, and jazz, as well as influences from Europe and Latin America. She is a creative force whose restless energy has found her reimagining Talking Heads’ classic Remain in Light, paying tribute to Celia Cruz, and collaborating with the LA Phil and Philip Glass. Don’t miss the return of Africa’s premier diva to the Bowl.
