Manou Gallo, musician and singer born in Divo, a small city in the Centre Western region of Ivory Coast, is a virtuose and unique talent with a rich heritage of her origin of the Djiboi tribe. In the Ivory Coast, playing music is an ongoing tradition taking place at funerals, births, or to welcome newly born twins as well as for any event of everyday life: In Divo, life follows the traditional Djiboi rhythms. Always connected to the African roots, she combines her sound with funk, jazz, soul and blues into multi-layered sound collages whose rhythm brings unbridled joy and groovy rhythms. Gallo sings in Dida, French and English.
