No Worry


So Angelique Kidjo just won a Grammy for Best World Music Album. Discounting the fact that the Grammys are almost as meaningless and self-serving an institution as the Oscars, and not questioning under what rubric ‘Best World Music Album’ is even a category, congratulations to her. She certainly deserves all the accolades she gets, and more. Anything that increases her platform  in the West as a musician and as an activist is good news.
