Musician, Social activist
Ghanaian international music star Rocky Dawuni has leveraged his popularity across the African continent to bring his unique Afro Roots sound to global audiences and champion social causes. Over the course of his career, and the release of five albums, his infectious grooves and dance-inducing anthems have consistently excited fans, including some of music’s biggest stars with whom he’s performed and collaborated. Having appeared at many of the biggest World and Reggae music events, Dawuni has worked alongside Stevie Wonder, Peter Gabriel, Jason Mraz, Sharon Jones, Janelle Monae, as well many others. His eloquence, passion and successful melding of celebrity with humanitarian action led him to be appointed the country’s Tourism Ambassador and “World Music Ambassador for MUSIGA (Musician’s Union of Ghana).” These efforts join his ongoing involvement with Product (RED), UNICEF, the Carter Center & the UN Global Fund.
