Belgian star Manou Gallo and her band will perform at the Youth Theater in Hanoi at 8 p.m. on Thursday before they hit the Hue Festival.

Gallo, a talented vocalist, bassist and guitarist, was born in Divo, a small city in the Centre-Western region of the Ivory Coast, where the Djiboi people reside. In 1997, Gallo came to Belgium and joined Zap Mama before founding her own band The Djiboi.

In 2002, she co-produced ‘DIDA’, her first CD, with Michel Seba, Bilou Doneux, Patrick Dorcean and Poney Gross from Zig Zag World and it received huge international acclaim.

With Manou Gallo she has performed at events such as Womex in Seville (Spain), at Voice of the World at the Midem in Cannes (France) and the Mercat De Musica in Vic (Spain) and in the last few years has performed all over the world.

She is currently preparing for project Acoustic Africa with singers Dobet Gnahore and Kareyce Fotso which will see the trio tour South America in November.

Free tickets can be picked up at Room 505, fifth floor at DAEHA Center in the Daewoo Hotel, 360 Kim Ma Street in Hanoi’s Ba Dinh District for the gig at the Youth Theater, 11 Ngo Thi Nham Street.
