ANGELIQUE KIDJO "Kids Against Malaria" Producer / Director Theater Mode
Kids Against Malaria is an awareness campaign about malaria treatment and prevention inspired by the children from the International Center of Art and Music in Ouidah, Benin. We worked with team of acclaimed musicians including Grammy Award-winning Beninoise superstar Angelique Kidjo, Antibalas and Gangbe Brass to produce this PSA to help in the fight to eradicate malaria. Together with the CIAMO, UNICEF and USAID we have helped to launch this health and awareness campaign in Benin and worldwide. Check out kidsagainstmalaria.org
From Vice/ Noisey Magazine; “The song (and accompanying video, beautifully shot and educational) is a wonder. PSAs have no right to be this entertaining. The message is vital but besides that the song is a jam; the kids are adorable as all heck, the production of both song and video perfect, and the fantastic performances by both the kids and the more established luminaries, make the video eminently re-watchable. Which is exactly the point.”
Kids Against Malaria was made with the support of UNICEF, USAID, The U.S. Embassy in Benin, U.S. Department of State, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Peace Corps and Harvard University.
