In association with Music for Change

Africa has a long history of internationally acclaimed singers - but what sets Dobet aside from all of them is her stage performance with the extra dimension of dance– a jubilant joyfulness that only dance can bring.

As Robin Denselow in the Guardian puts it “a charismatic singer-songwriter poised for crossover success”. 

Her international prominence began with a Grammy Award for “Palea” which she composed and sang on her album “Na Afriki” featuring longtime collaborator guitarist Colin Larouche.

 “It isn’t just the look but the power and range of Gnahoré’s voice that is transfixing. And when she started to dance, it simply underlined why she has a reputation as being one of Africa’s most dynamic performers.” Songlines

Dobet who sings and dances like nobody else, with a stage presence radiating unbelievable style is riding high on several 4-star reviews for her new album MIZIKI.

Tide Lines

Forged from the literature and music of the areas they grew up in, Tide Lines meld romantic, rural life with a record collection of classic American songwriters. Imagine, if you will, a 70’s Springsteen and an E-Street band of bagpipes and electronics! It’s a Tenth Avenue Freeze Out but not one made in New Jersey.

Our work with young people

Children and Young People are at the heart of what we do, as audience members, as participants and as thought leaders.

Through our landmark ART31 project we are working with young people and partners in Kent to create new opportunities through the arts for under 25's across the county.
