Angelique's collaboration with Philip Glass: IFÉ, THREE YORÙBÁ SONGS
On January 17th 2014, the Orchestre Philharmonique Du Luxembourg performed the premiere of the Ifé, the cycle of songs Philip Glass has composed for Angelique.
Ifé was the most important Yoruba kingdoms. It is believed to be the place where the world was created. The god Olodumare sent his Orishas Obatala and Oduduwa to the world, in order to create the land. Yemandja ran away and joined the ocean Oshumare, the rainbow snake, encircles the earth and prevents it from falling.
