Angelique Kidjo and Ziggy Marley will appear today May 22 of 2007 on the The Tonight Show with Jay Leno (one of the most important late night entertainment shows in American TV). They will perform the song "Sedjedo" from Angelique‘s new album Djin Djin.
Inspired by the traditions and culture of her native Benin in West Africa, Angelique Kidjo recorded Djin Djin, a wink to the sound of the bell that greets the beginning of a new day for Africa.
Produced by Tony Visconti (David Bowie, Morrissey, T. Rex), guests include Peter Gabriel, Carlos Santana, Ziggy Marley, Amadou & Mariam, Branford Marsalis, Josh Groban, Alicia Keys, and Joss Stone.
