“An artist who was named by CNN as one of ‘Africa’s Top global stars’……(Rocky’s music) cements this notion with a soaring anthem complete with bright percussion and majestic horns, and Dawuni’s vision and themes of global unity certainly make him an artist with a conscience and an ability to connect with people on a social, political and spiritual level.” – Take Effect Reviews
“Rocky Dawuni’s album manages to retain the reggae sound that made him famous and pay homage to Ghanaian culture while promoting the messages of global unity and oneness that he has so passionately advocated for.” – Black Grooves
As an advocate for environmental and humanitarian issues and a beloved voice for his country, Rocky was named a UN Goodwill Ambassador for the Environment for Africa. In this role, Rocky recently participated in the UN Environment Assembly (UNEA) in Nairobi, Kenya where he addressed and performed for delegates during the landmark signing of the plastic pollution resolution.
Rocky has also been busy promoting his current release featuring his signature “Afro Roots” sound featured on the album “Voice of Bunbon, Vol. 1” which is nominated for the “Best Global Music Album” GRAMMY – with featured interviews on the BBC, CNN, VOA and more. Voice of America called it a “meditative new EP that harks back to the values that inspired his musical journey in the first place…presenting a globalized version of African culture.”
Rocky has revealed plans to tour starting in the summer, including dates in the US and Europe and of course back home in his beloved Africa.
