Maui Arts & Cultural Center brings to Maui Ivory Coast vocalist and dancer Dobet Gnahoré, in concert in the MACC’s Castle Theater Thursday evening, Feb. 23 at 7:30 p.m.

Dobet Gnahoré has earned a reputation as one of the most vibrant performers in world music today. Hailed by critics as Africa’s leading star on the rise, her vocal artistry along with her dancing and on-stage charisma have appealed to audiences worldwide.

As a child, Dobet Gnahoré was trained in the music and dance traditions of the Bété people by her father, a well-known performer in West Africa.

On stage, Gnahoré’s voice, dancing, charisma, and huge presence brings audiences to their feet around the world. Dobet sings in a range of African languages including Bété, Fon, Baoule, Lingala, Malinke, Mina, and Bambara, thereby reproducing the Pan-African tradition of the Ki Yi Mbock group.

Her voice, charisma and presence, is fined tuned through theatrical and choreographic work. In 2010, she shared an award for Best Urban/Alternative Performance with India.Arie at the 52nd Grammy Awards.
