Dobet Gnahoré

Thursday, February 23, 2017; Castle Theater; 7:30 pm
Ivory Coast vocalist and dancer, Dobet Gnahoré, has garnered a reputation as one of the most vibrant performers in world music today. Hailed by critics as Africa’s leading star on the rise, her extraordinary talents position her to set the course for the genre. As a child, Gnahoré was trained in the music and dance traditions of the Bété people by her father, a well-known performer in West Africa. On stage, Gnahoré’s voice, dancing, charisma, and huge presence brings audiences to their feet around the world. Dobet sings in a range of African languages including Bété, Fon, Baoule, Lingala, Malinke, Mina, and Bambara, thereby reproducing the Pan-African tradition of the Ki Yi Mbock group. On stage, her voice, her charisma, and her presence, the result of several years of theatrical and choreographic work, has immense audience appeal. In 2010, she shared an award for Best Urban/Alternative Performance with India.Arie at the 52nd Grammy Awards.

“Take the energy of Lauryn Hill, the consciousness of India.Arie, and the mystique of Erykah Badu and you get Dobet Ganhoré, “ —St Louis American.”
