“It isn’t just the look but the power and range of Gnahoré’s voice that is transfixing. And when she started to dance, it simply underlined why she has a reputation as being one of Africa’s most dynamic performers.” Songlines

Africa has a long history of internationally acclaimed singers – but what sets Dobet aside from all of them is her stage performance with the extra dimension of dance– a jubilant joyfulness that only dance can bring. As Robin Denselow in the Guardian puts it “a charismatic singer-songwriter poised for crossover success”. 

Her international prominence began with a Grammy Award for “Palea” which she composed and sang on her album “Na Afriki” featuring longtime collaborator guitarist Colin Larouche

Dobet who sings and dances like nobody else, with a stage presence radiating unbelievable style is riding high on several 4-star reviews for her new album MIZIKI.
