Singer Dobet Gnahoré, daughter of master percussionist Boni Gnahoré, was raised in the musical traditions of the Ivory Coast. Although rhythm and percussion obviously have an important place in her music, the sound she has developed is far from traditional. On her latest album Miziki, Gnahoré uses a lot of electronic sounds. There is no deep bass but instead soulful compositions that are a perfect vehicle for her beautiful voice - Afropop as it should sound in 2019. Gnahoré relocated to France after unrest forced her to leave her home country. When performing, her voice is only half the story: you also see a rebellious woman on stage, leather-clad with a punk look and attitude, long wild hair and a pair of drumsticks in her hands. Gnahoré pulls you in and never lets you go.
