Dobet Gnahoré

Location: UH Hilo Performing Arts Center

Ivory Coast vocalist and dancer Dobet GnahorĂ© has garnered a reputation as one of the most vibrant performers in world music. Her extraordinary talents position her to set the course for the genre. “Take the energy of Lauryn Hill, the consciousness of India.Arie and the mystique of Erykah Badu and you got Dobet GanhorĂ©,” says St Louis American.

As a child, GnahorĂ© trained in the music and dance traditions of the BĂ©tĂ© people at the urging of her father, a well-known performer and master percussionist in West Africa. Gnahoré’s voice, dancing, charisma, and vibrant stage presence is the result of years of theatrical and choreographic work and brings audiences everywhere to their feet. GnahorĂ© sings in a range of African languages including BĂ©tĂ©, Fon, Baoule, Lingala, Malinke, Mina and Bambara.

In 2010 she shared an award for Best Urban/Alternative Performance with India.Arie at the 52nd GrammyÂź Awards and has released several albums, including her latest Na DrĂȘ in 2014.
