Rocky Dawuni just completed a string of elaborate performances and collaborations in India including the massive Mysuru Dasara festival at Mysore Palace and the Jhabhangadadash event in Chennai held at Nehru Stadium to a sold-out audience. Recently named a UN Goodwill Ambassador for Africa, Dawuni also performed at the United Nations Headquarters in Nairobi, Kenya as well as at the UN Palace of Nations in Geneva for the World Health Organization’s (WHO) “Breathe Life” concert which was held in Geneva, Switzerland.

“Rocky is the next generation of Afro-beat, voicing the concerns of the voiceless with a great African, Jamaican and American orchestra of musicians forging a new sound with him in compositions that reflect both the past and a path to inform the future.“ Reggaeville

Rocky is currently preparing to release his much anticipated 7th album entitled “Beats of Zion” in early 2019 through Six Degrees Records. His new song “Burn One” was recently featured on tastemaker radio station KCRW as their “Top Tune of the Day” and was featured on TNT’s hit TV drama “Animal Kingdom.” Another forthcoming track from the album “Let’s Go” is the theme song for Cadbury Canada’s Bicycle Factory Campaign 2018 and the beautiful 360-degree video for the song has already reached over 1 million views on YouTube.
