“Gnahoré has an extraordinary voice, and she wields it in so many unique and distinct ways that not only do we not get tired of hearing her, but it doesn’t even occur to us that we can’t understand the lyrics. Gnahoré’s voice has an extraordinary personality—one second she’s a diva, belting out R&B over a soft-rock backing of acoustic guitar and percussion, and the next she’s telling us how it is, ripping the mic right into her hands (or it sounds like she is, anyway) and preaching lyrics directly out of the stereo.”

GRAMMY-winner Dobet Gnahoré is one of Africa's hottest and most beloved talents. With her amazing voice, incredible dance moves, powerful presence, and colorful style sense, Dobet Gnahoré appeals to fans of Angelique Kidjo, Yemi Alade, Fatoumata Diawara and other divas of African music.
Dobet’s electrifying new album Couleur was recorded in Africa during the pandemic, and celebrates local talent, women’s rights, creativity and positivity in spite of challenging times. Scheduled for worldwide release on June 4, the album marks an energetic homecoming and exciting new artistic direction for this dynamic diva from Côte d’Ivoire (Ivory Coast).
Couleur also marks a return to the Cumbancha label, which released her highly-praised album Na Afriki in 2007. An album filled with danceable grooves, electronic beats, nimble electric guitar lines and catchy melodic hooks. Couleur reflects the urban energy of modern Africa and the powerful spirit of an independent woman looking ahead to a positive and successful future. Couleur solidifies Gnahoré’s position as one of Africa’s brightest stars and most striking talents.
