STYLE ICON: Dobet Gnahoré


Grammy Award-winning and World Music-nominated Ivorian musician and singer Dobet Gnahoré’s style is beyond your wildest Afro-punk dreams.
With a band consisting of her percussionist father Boni Ngahoré, as well as several French and Tunisian acts, both the 29-year-old singer’s musical sounds and aesthetic mirror various elements of Pan-Africanism that can often be seen in the jewelry she wears and the infusion of Bété, Baoulé, reggae, rumba and Manding influences in her music.
