Preview: Dobet Gnahore @ Rich Mix (London, 29th September 2016)

Dobet Gnahore6_Nicoles-BARRET_0

Dobet Gnahore moved to Marseille from Abijan (Ivory Coast most populous city) almost twenty years ago. The civil war forced her and her family to flee the Western Africa, but she brought her country with her and she proudly displays her roots in every gig she plays.

Today, Dobet has deservedly taken her place as one of the most energetic emblems of Ivorian and African culture in the world. Her songs are musical documentaries about the issues faced by her native land, its people and their everyday struggles. Her songs are about Africa: they’re sung in a tapestry of African languages about a multitude of African themes. Her songs particularly speak about women: the ones who inspired her to become the person she is today.

She will present her symbolic and rhythmic pattern book of stories and tales to the Rich Mix audience on Thursday, during the London African Music Festival. No need to say that, after having applauded and cheered her voice, energy and talent, you will step out of the East London venue emotionally enriched and inspired.
