Dobet Gnahore

Vocalist, dancer, and percussionist Dobet Gnahore has been hailed Africa's leading star on the rise, compared to genre legends and cultural ambassadors like Miriam Makeba and Hugh Masakela by her mid-twenties. Brought up in a musical and artistic hot-house environment, Gnahore's musical talent comes as no surprise. Her father, Boni Gnahore, a drummer, vocalist, and performer renown across the Ivory Coast, was a founding member of the artist colony Village Ki-Yi M'Bock, a community of more than 50 artists from multiple disciplines and backgrounds. Her first artistic turning point came when Gnahore was 12 and announced to her father that she wasn't going to school anymore, but rather staying at the colony to learn. After years of apprenticeship with some of the continent's most proficient artists, Gnahore came upon a second turning point. French guitarist Colin Laroche de Feline came to the village, his intended three-day visit turning into a three-year residency. Gnahore's and Laroche de Feline's professional and personal lives became woven together, creating a duo called Ano Neko. They spent significant time in both Africa and France (depending on the African political climate) touring and performing. The group's self-titled debut was released in 2004 to enthusiastic critical acclaim. Two years later Ano Neko was invited to join the Putumayo Acoustic Africa tour, which traveled all over Europe and North America. Gnahore and Laroche de Feline won fans and impressed audiences, performing alongside musical greats Vusi Mahlasela and Habib Koité. Soon to follow was Gnahore's sophomore release, Na Afriki, which, thanks to her ever expanding fan base, appeared on world music charts immediately following its release. Laroche de Feline and Gnahore maintain a busy performance schedule while living with their daughter in the French countryside. Gnahore's comfort in a wide array of African musical styles has earned her a reputation as prodigy and talent that will one day help chart the course for the genre. ~ Evan C. Gutierrez, Rovi

Wish she toured in the U.S. I love herrrrrr.... So much passion in everything she does.
It is always a pleasure to hear the voices of Mother Africa coming through her children and she is a wonderful singer,
terzy
I hope she dosn't follow the steps of other African singers who, once they get to Europe or the West, forget about their African roots, and start recording blah Western pop (like Angelique Kidjo did).
Wonderful voice, only if I understood the language.
Don't understand much of what the sister says, but I feel her expression of pain regarding the current African situation.
