Our friends at the San Diego Symphony are presenting a concert that should be of great interest to world music fans. Singer Angélique Kidjo, hailed as “Africa’s premier diva,” will perform this weekend with guitarist Dominic James and the symphony orchestra in a Bayside Summer Nights Concert in downtown San Diego. Guest conductor will be Gast Waltzing, who shared a Grammy award with the Beninese vocalist for her album “Sings.” Other notable artists to collaborate with Kidjo include Peter Gabriel, Alicia Keys, Carlos Santana and Cassandra Wilson.
