The Krishnakriti Foundation, as part of its annual art and cultural festival, in association with the Alliance Francaise of Hyderabad and the French Embassy In India, is presenting an evening of traditional tunes and irresistible foot tapping music from the Ivory Coast. Dobet Gnahore is performing on 8th January, at the Taj Banjara Hotel.

Dobet Gnahore was born on June 17, 1982 in a small village in the Ivory Coast, West Africa. Her father, Boni Gnahore, is a master percussionist who founded a sort of artists' community, in which Gnahore grew up. She draws heavily on the traditional music of the Ivory Coast, but also explores other African genres to create a diverse, Pan-African pop-influenced sound of her own. She sings in over 8 different languages, and her lyrics speak about the issues of women in Africa, as well as about multiple social issues. Dobet Gnahore is also an accomplished dancer, and traditional and contemporary African dance feature heavily in her live shows.

The Krishnakriti Art And Culture Festival is organised every year by the Lahoti Foundation, which was established by Prashant Lahoti in memory of his father Krishnachandra B Lahoti. On this occasion, art camps are organised by eminent artists and the works are auctioned off at the end of the festival. The proceeds from the sales go to the Krishnachandra B Lahoti Scholarship, which sponsors holistic education for deserving and needy students. Last year's proceeds supported 70 children.
