Angélique Kidjo released an excellent new album, Mother Nature, in June, which, as we wrote in our Notable Releases review, "swirls together Afrobeat, pop, reggae, hip hop, and more," and "straddles the line between Angélique's roots and current pop music in a natural way." She has some shows supporting the album coming up this fall and in 2022, including Burlington, Berkeley, NYC, Atlanta, Austin, and more, as well as dates in Europe and the UK. See all dates below.

The first NYC date is a big one, at the recently reopened Carnegie Hall on November 5, and tickets are on sale now.

Later this year, she'll help celebrate the official groundbreaking of the renovation of the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Michael C. Rockefeller Wing with shows there on December 27 and 28 (tickets).

Angélique is also on the lineup for livestream concert WisdomSound, which benefits Ka-Nying Shedrub Ling Monestary and Nagi Nunnery in Nepal. That features performances from Laurie Anderson, Jon Batiste, Norah Jones, Steve Miller Band, Gregory Porter, and Maggie Rogers, too, and it streams on November 8 at 8 PM ET. Watch for free on Mandolin.
