Biography


Dobet Gnahore

https://youtu.be/6CkvcdW6Lo8


Vocalist: https://youtu.be/vx9faqEp8BI, Dancer:https://youtu.be/HXQTnRlZwiY, Percussionist/composer/choreographer:https://youtu.be/vx9faqEp8BI

Dobet was raised amongst the musical traditions of the Bété people of Côte D'Ivoire. She studied and learned singing, dance, percussion as well as drama with the Pan African Ki-Yi Mbock Company at the artists' village near Abidjan and spent time with Tiché Tiché dance company before relocating to Europe due to the unsettled situations in Côte d'Ivoire at the time.

In Europe her band was formed and she has performed all over Africa, The Americas, Asia and Europe; including The U.K. She has four albums to date: Ano Neko (2003),

Na Afriki(2007), Djekpa La You (2010) and Na Dré (2014)

Singing in a strong and melodic vocal style, Dobet has a dynamic and visual striking stage presence; singing in a strong and melodic vocal style that enhances her vocal appeal. She sings in 7 + languages which enforces the Pan African nature of her work.

We are privileged to have her for this workshop in London.
