BENIN HERE | The soulful, soaring Beninoise singer ANGELIQUE KIDJO, whose career began in the late ’80s as a sort of African contemporary of Annie Lennox and evolved to a genre-hopping international appeal, is a pretty significant name to be playing Midcoast Maine in mid-February. Fresh off a live album bearing the talents of Branford Marsalis, singers Diane Reeves and Josh Groban, and Vampire Weekend’s Ezra Koenig, the UNICEF ambassador and activist’s show is rumored to be a sensational affair. Kidjo hits the Strand, 345 Main St. in Rockland, at 7:30 pm; tickets are $55. 207.594.0070.
