"Dobet Gnahoré makes everything move."
Grammy-award winning Dobet Gnahoré is a singer, dancer and percussionist from the Ivory Coast, who inherited the force of the `Bété` tradition from her father, Boni Gnahoré, a master percussionist. Dobet sings in a range of African languages including Bété, Fon, Baoule, Lingala, Malinke, Mina or Bambara. With her powerful voice and charisma, and compositions from Mandingue melodies to Congolese rumba, from Ivory Coast Ziglibiti to Cameroon Bikoutsi, from Ghanian High-Life to Zulu choirs, carried with jazz-like sounds, Dobet wows audiences around the world.
