Ghana’s 2016 Grammy nominee Rocky Dawuni would be performing in Los Angeles on 6 August.
The reggae man has only just returned from a tour of Europe performing in venues under the ‘Branches of the Same Tree Tour’. That tour saw him cross the continent’s main cities like Spain, Belgium, Germany, Latvia, Czech Republic.
The ‘African Thriller’ singer also performed at the legendary Bangalore Place in India with Grammy winning musician and composer Ricky Kej. This time, Rocky Dawuni will be bringing his sound to excite the famed City of Angels at the Levitt Pavilion Los Angeles in MacArthur Park.
Also an activist, Rocky Dawuni straddles the boundaries between Africa, the Caribbean and the US to create his signature ‘Afro Roots’ sound that unites generations and cultures.
Dawuni’s music is a progressive fusion of reggae, afrobeat, soul and highlife music. Rocky has shared the stage with Stevie Wonder, Peter Gabriel, Bono, Jason Mraz, Janelle Monae and John Legend, among many others and was named one of Africa’s Top 10 global stars by CNN.
Rocky Dawuni and his all-star band will be joined by Los Angeles resident DJ Drez who is into hiphop, world, reggae, jazz, and soul genres. He has performed with Rocky Dawuni for many years and is one of the top DJs in the yoga community.
