Lionel Loueke by Jean-Baptiste Millot
Jazz icon Herbie Hancock has called Benin-born guitarist Lionel Loueke a “musical painter.” Loueke’s fluid guitar playing—inspired by African and traditional jazz—was one of the highlights of Angélique Kidjo’s sensational Remain in Light concert in 2017. Loueke and his trio, along with special guest Brazilian percussion superstar Cyro Baptista, honor Kidjo in a concert that both celebrates and reinvents many of her marvelous songs.
