Moha Dosso was born in Côte d’Ivoire. He is a drummer, singer, and choreographer who has performed with and coached several dance troupes in Ivory Coast. He is also a tailor, specializing in costume design. He is one of a very few acrobat stilt walkers and fire dancers performing in the United States. He shares this about the dances of the Côte d’Ivoire:
"The Kou Kou dance is a social dance, just for fun, to help teach children the basics of African dance. We can do that type of dance any time, in the village or the big city. And it’s not just adults—kids do these dances and old people, too."
Dosso says there are only three dancers from the Mahouka people in the U.S. right now—his uncle Vado Diomande in New York; his cousin Sogbety Diomande in Mansfield, Ohio; and Dosso, who lives in Cincinnati.
