Orchestre Philharmonique du Luxembourg. Gustavo Gimeno, Music Director. The orchestra of the Grand Duchy, the Orchestre Philharmonique du Luxembourg (OPL), represents a very dynamic part of the culture of its country. Since its brilliant debut in 1933 under the aegis of Radio Luxembourg (RTL), the orchestra has performed all over Europe. Publicly administered since 1996, the OPL has since 2005 been resident at the Philharmonie Luxembourg, one of the most prestigious concert halls in Europe. Since 2003, the orchestra has taken on concerts and workshops for schools, children and families as well as educational DVD productions. It performs in schools and hospitals, and prepares school classes for its subscription concerts.

Album · 2015 · 11 Songs. Angélique Kidjo reimagines songs from all across her discography here, blending her strong-but-supple pipes with the Orchestre Philharmonique du Luxembourg’s artful arrangements. Her voice shifts seamlessly from sweet to guttural on Malaika, the Tanzanian love song made famous by Miriam Makeba; bridges Benin and Mexico on Carlos Santana’s Samba Pa Ti ; and dips into a French chanson feel on Petite Fleur, with the orchestra elegantly entwining itself around her at every turn. Sings Angélique Kidjo.

Simply known as Angélique Kidjo, she is a feminist, polyglot, singer/songwriter, goodwill and cultural ambassador whose second Grammy win for Eve prompted her to release Sings in collaboration with L’Orchestre Philharmonique du Luxembourg. This album, chronicling her best may be another well deserved nominee at the Grammys next year. An international affair in the making, the album was produced by Kidjo and her husband Jean Hébrail, with the orchestra’s Gast Waltzing and his 110-instrumental army, the choirs from Nigeria and a long list of world-class musicians, and it brings the best of Kidjo’s work over the years to life. Dropping names is passé, so I’m going to skip naming the amazing collaborators simply because the list is too long and I’d rather let you Google them later and lose yourself in their work.

Three-time Grammy Award winner Angélique Kidjo is one of the greatest artists in international music today, a creative force with thirteen albums to her name ime Magazine has called her "Africa's premier diva". The BBC has included her in its list of the continent's 50 most iconic figures, and in 2011 The Guardian listed her as one of their Top 100 Most Inspiring Women in the World. EVE later went on to win the Grammy Award for Best World Music Album in 2015, and her historic, orchestral album Sings with the Orchestre Philharmonique Du Luxembourg (Savoy/429 Records) won a Grammy for Best World Music Album in 2016. Angelique has gone on to perform this genre-bending work with several international orchestras and symphonies including the Bruckner Orchestra, The Royal Scottish National Orchestra, and the Philharmonie de Paris.

Along with the orchestra, Kidjo is joined by her own band and guest musicians including guitarist Lionel Loueke, bassist Christian McBride, and backing vocalists. Arranged by Waltzing and guitarist David Laborier, the material comprises thorough revisionings of songs central to Kidjo's catalog, including dramatic presentations of "Malaika," "Loloye," "Kelele," the traditional "Otishe," "Nanae," and her gorgeous "Naima" (not to be confused with John Coltrane's tune of the same title)

Kidjo dedicated the "Best World Music Album" award to aspiring artists on the continent of Africa. The Beninese-born singer won the Grammy for her album "Sings," a collection of her songs infused with Western classical traditions in a collaboration with the Orchestre Philharmonique du Luxembourg and Gast Waltzing. I want to thank the Luxembourg Philharmonic Orchestra, and the arranger, conductor Gast Waltzing. This is the second straight year that Kidjo has won the Best World Music Album prize, after last year's "Eve" that paid tribute to African women.
