Dobet Gnahoré is a young true visionary living the dream of music & dance & celebration of her expansive African culture. She is a highly dynamic talent who has brightly & wonderfully emerged from the Ivory Coast of Africa. Dobet’s father is a legendary percussionist who remains influential & active (often playing with his daughter). Dobet grew up in a very unique artistic enclave in her home village surrounded by nurturing creative family & friends. Fleeing civil war at home, she resettled in France in 1999. She has acquired immense experience & skills from years of performing on stages & at festivals throughout the world.
Dobet has been nicely described as a voice of the future. She has honed her art from a young age combining live music, dance, movement, energy, healing, love, inspiration, imagination, vision, family & even social concerns. Beginning as a dancer, singer & percussionist, she continues to immerse herself in this destined performing career. At its core, her inner muse is expressed when she performs. Versed in at least 6 African languages, Dobet’s mastery & luminous voice have no perceivable limits. This is music for all the senses. It is to its roots emotional. Bringing you along on a surreal journey. It’s as honest as the truth. The authentic vibrance comes to life. The power captivates & thrills while still allowing for escape & indulgence. Find out for yourself.
