Grammy-nominated Ghanaian Reggae artist Rocky Dawuni will announce a new cultural project that will be initiated through the Rocky Dawuni Foundation.
Rocky Dawuni is overseeing the development of a series of “cultural incubators” for youth to develop their musical and artistic talents.
These incubators will also allow for community outreach and educational opportunities.
The first center will be housed in the rambling studio complex formerly created by Rita Marley in honour of her husband, the legendary Reggae musician Bob Marley (1945-1981) near the city of Aburi, about 35 kilometres north of Accra.
“Many West African youth, despite their great potential, lack opportunities,”
Rocky Dawuni said. “our vision is to develop a new generation of leaders who are committed to improving their own communities through skills-based training, personal initiative and collective action.”
