I first heard this on a roadtrip in a friend's car and we nearly ran off the road trying to dance while driving. The only disadvantage about having my own copy is that I must play is on high volume and I still can't sit still while it is playing. It is wonderful to find some good music that does not correspond to any of the market's categories or styles. This is just itself, and it is very good.

(Wish I knew what the lyrics meant though)

This album is upbeat and innovative, and Kidjo is such a talented artist I'm personally surprised that nobody has reviewed this so far. I firt bought the album after hearing 'Adouma', which still nver fails to make me want to dance, but all the tracks are diverse , it would be difficult to pick a favourite. I couldn't really compare it to anything else I own (which i think is a good thing!), but this is an excellent album I can happily recommend.

"AYE" IS ANGELIQUE KIDJO'S SUPREME ACHIEVEMENT 2 Dec. 2005
By Possum-Bread - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Angelique Kidjo's CD "Aye," in my humble opinion, is her greatest work. In it, she creates a bright Afro-pop sound that dominates the entire CD. The lead song "Agolo" is an upbeat, energetic dance number that is catchy. The video for "Agolo" was nominated for a Grammy Award. The harder-edged "Adouma" and the expansive, soaring "Djan-Djan" help mix things up, making "Aye" an adventurous listening experience.

Here is some background on Angelique Kidjo: She was born, one of nine children, in the village of Ouidah in the little West African country of Benin. Her father is a musician, her mother a clothes merchant and director of a large dance troupe. Angelique began to sing and dance at the age of six. One of her older brothers introduced her at an early age to western rock, such as The Stones, Jimi Hendrix, James Brown and Aretha Franklin. She also was exposed to jazz, Arabic and Pakistani music in addition to church music. She began to sing in a band called Sphinx, which became popular and won several local competitions. In 1980 she moved to Paris and enrolled at music school, learning classical French songs and jazz. Thereafter she studied under the jazz singer Joy Kane for two years, something that had a strong influence on her later career and helped develop further her powerful and deep voice, as well as her rhythm and precision. In 1984 she participated in a tour with Radio France in West Africa. During this time she made several recordings in France and The Netherlands, before being discovered by Chris Blackwell of Island Records.

If you enjoy World music or are just curious about it, "Aye" is a perfect choice. It's Afro-pop sound is infectious and has just enough of an American pop flavor to win over the most fickle listener. I wholeheartedly recommend it.

A sure cure for boredom and bad days... 9 May 2000
By Antonio Arch - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This album has the capacity to make a vast variety of people stop and listen to it; "Agolo" in particular is one of those rare pieces of contemporary music that can improve the atmosphere of many a situation and you might find yourself thinking of and trying to hum or shout the melody yourself.
Translations are included in the notes, but even without knowledge of what Kidjo is singing about, the melodies, percussion and bass have been designed to endure and stand on their own and they do so beautifully.

One of my favorites 3 Mar. 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Aye's tunes are instantly appealing and the polyrhythms both interesting and foot-snapping. I heard Angelique Kidjo at an aerobics class and went out the same day and bought all her CD's. I have lost count of the number of friends of mine who heard her music at my place and then went out and did the same! There is something about her voice and the spirit of her singing that never gets monotonous even if you listen to her every day - and I have only said this about Thelonious Monk's music - so its high praise indeed.

Exuberant, colourful! 23 Oct. 2000
By Terence - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
What a collection of sounds and rhythms! I remember seeing Angelique in concert; she at one point invited all the children in the hall to come up on stage and dance. Every time I listen, it seems that we humans might just be able to live on earth together after all. One of my favourite CD's.

Tribal Pop??? 9 May 2001
By Blair Williams - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
She has a beautiful crisp voice and this CD is got some great percusion which realy compliments the African lyrics. There is a remix of Agolo(the 1st track). I'm not sure who remixed it but I have it on a DJ mix tape and it's a hot dance beat worth looking for...
