Muze PNote Arranger: Ang?lique Kidjo.
Muze PNote The Beninese singer Angelique Kidjo has been a fixture on the world music scene since the early 1990s, with the success of her first internationally released album, PARAKOU. Her inclusive style blends African, Caribbean, Brazilian, and Western rock musical influences in an irresistible potpourri, crowned with her powerful, distinctive voice, which can turn on a dime from sweet to savage.
Muze PNote Helmed by the veteran producer Tony Visconti, DJIN DJIN follows Kidjo's practice, established on previous albums, of featuring high-caliber guest vocalists, including in this case Peter Gabriel, Ziggy Marley, and Alicia Keys. The wide-ranging set encompasses the haunting, swaying "Salala," the delicate title track, and a typical Kidjo-style Africanized reworking of the Rolling Stones' "Gimme Shelter" (on past albums she has also reinterpreted classics such as Jimi Hendrix's "Voodoo Chile" and Serge Gainsbourg's "Ces Petits Riens"). It's a testament to her formidable musical personality and impeccable musical taste that, despite the presence of her high-powered guests, Kidjo puts her unique stamp on this impressive and eclectic collection.

Vibe (p.134)
- "[S]he's never ranged more widely than on DJIN DJIN, her eighth studio release, where the grooves are downright pan-global."

Dirty Linen (p.47)
- "More than half the album's tracks are dedicated solely to Kidjo's beautiful singing, backed by this ace band."
