  • EARLYBIRD £13 / ...

Grammy Award-winning afro-pop sensation Dobet Gnahoré sings and dances like nobody else, her stage presence radiating with unbelievable style and energy. The songs on her new album ‘MIZIKI’ were torn from the depths of this open, courageous and intensely feminine African. A student at Abidjan’s Ki Yi M’bock, like Youssou N’Dour, Salif Keita and Ray Lema – she has become an internationally-acclaimed voice whom the Guardian described as “WOMAD’s best act”.

Support comes from Yemi Bolatiwa Trio. Yemi Bolatiwa, top line house vocalist, lead singer of Pareidolia, The Exacters and neosoul singer of the Manchester circuit brings her brand new electro-soul project to the fore. Expect smooth breakbeats, neo-soul style and upbeat flavours of bass influenced music, underneath classic soul & rnb vocals!

This is a standing show.

10+. Under 16s must be accompanied by a responsible adult.
