Arts at UNCW

Thurs, Nov 3, 2011
8 PM Kenan Auditorium

Dobet Gnahoré (pronounced DOH-bay gna-OR-ay), a remarkable singer from the Côte d'Ivoire, performs with a group of instrumentalists offering new sounds, ancient traditions and remarkable music. From Mandingue melodies to Congolese rumba, Ivory Coast ziglibiti to Cameroon bikoutsi, Gnahoré's pan-African palette blends colorful compositions, jazz-inflected vocals and unparalleled charisma. Singing about love, life and loss in present-day Africa, she is widely hailed as one of the freshest talents in new African music.
