The long awaited return of Rocky Dawuni in Ghana, performing with his full band with some upcoming and legacy artists joining him in song!
Ghanaian musician and activist, Rocky Dawuni, straddles the boundaries between Africa, the Caribbean and the U.S. to create an appealing sound that unites generations and cultures. A galvanizing performer, Dawuni has shared the stage with Stevie Wonder, Janelle Monae and John Legend, among many others.
Named one of Africa’s Top 10 global stars by CNN, he has showcased his talent at prestigious venues around the world including The Kennedy Center, Lincoln Center and the Hollywood Bowl.
Influenced by the soulful beats of Fela Kuti, the positive messages of Bob Marley and the infectious, sing-along anthems of artists like Michael Franti, Rocky Dawuni’s sixth album, Branches of the Same Tree, was released earlier this year on Cumbancha Records which we will be celebrating tonight in Ghana!
