In 2010, at the Golena del Furlo, he enchanted and involved with his warm and powerful voice and his magnetic, overwhelming stage presence: his return to Fano Jazz By The Sea can not but be appreciated by everyone. Native of the Ivory Coast, Dobet Gnahorè is one of the new voices of Africa: she debuted in 2004 and since then her name has started to travel around the world. With the deep knowledge of the béte tradition, learned from his father, master percussionist of Abidjan, Dobet Gnahorè has incorporated elements of Congolese rumba, Cameroonian bikoutsi, Ghanaian high-life and more into his music, reaching a rhythmic synthesis and sound of great impact. In addition to English and French, Dobet sings in different African languages - Betè, Fon, Baoulè, Lingala, Wolof, Malinkè, Mina and Bambara – so that the messages of his songs are everywhere understandable.
