Dobet Gnahoré

Location: UH Hilo Performing Arts Center

Ivory Coast vocalist and dancer Dobet Gnahoré 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 Ganhoré,” says St Louis American.

As a child, Gnahoré trained in the music and dance traditions of the Bété 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. Gnahoré sings in a range of African languages including Bété, Fon, Baoule, Lingala, Malinke, Mina and Bambara.

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