Hailing from Côte d'Ivoire (Ivory Coast), Dobet Gnahoré is a virtuosic singer, dancer, percussionist, and songwriter who has taken the modern Afropop sounds of her country in exciting new directions. A 2010 GRAMMY winner, Dobet Gnahoré is well known for her jaw-dropping dance moves, powerful stage presence and richly emotional vocal style. Her music is filled with danceable grooves, electronic beats, nimble electric guitar lines and catchy melodic hooks.

Through her music, she pays tribute to the women of today and tomorrow and aims to use her words and image to empower a new generation of daring, strong and independent African women.
