Dobet Gnahore is compared to Africa's great legends... gave amazing performance in Jamaica

Dobet Gnahoré, Africa's new voice, a dancer and percussionist from the Ivory Coast, has been compared to genre legends and cultural ambassadors like Miriam Makeba and Hugh Masakela.

But, she's a rarity who on stage exudes an inner strength and commanding presence. She is mesmerising even before she opens her mouth to sing. With such voice filled with emotion and range Dobet, it is said, moves through ranges of heartfelt ballads, funky stuff, and danceable songs all performed in a wide range of African styles.

Dobet Gnahore dances and the true depth of her amazing talent shines through. Acrobatically she leaps across the stage in rapid quick movements and at just 24 years old she seems to have gotten it all, an exceptional voice, amazing dance skills and the engaging aura reserved for artistic greats.

Dobet Gnahore is arguably African music’s most exciting young talent.
