She fuses African music in a very inventive and modern way with Funk, Blues and Beats. For the music she has been inspired by the Djiboi (the people of Ivory Coast) but also by her current western musical culture.
The combination of Soul, Funk and Blues is within the concept of groove a common denominator. Far beyond only world music, Manou Gallo has yet reached a world class level. Hot music full of emotion and sensitivities expressed in various languages (Dida, French and English).
In 2017 Manou joined forces with Bass legend Bootsy Collins. The result is her upcoming album which is a powerful, fresh and unique fusion of African Rhythms and Funk.
Single release: 20 April 2018, album release summer/autumn. Produced by Bootsy Collins and featuring the master himself , Chuck D ( Public Enemy ), Zap Mama and Manu Dibango.
