HIFA 2-7 May

Rocky Dawuni

Music • Tickets: $10.00

Ghanaian musician and activist, Rocky Dawuni straddles the boundaries between Africa, the Caribbean and the U.S. to create his globally influential Afro Roots sound. A galvanizing performer, Dawuni has shared the stage with Stevie Wonder, Peter Gabriel, Bono, Jason Mraz,Janelle Monae and John Legend, among many others.

Named one of Africa's Top 10 global stars by CNN, he has showcased his talent at prestigious venues such as The Kennedy Center, Lincoln Center and The Hollywood Bowl. Influenced by the soulful beats of Fela Kuti, the positive messages of Bob Marley and the infectious, sing-along anthems of Michael Franti - Rocky Dawuni's sixth album, Branches of the Same Tree (Cumbancha) was GRAMMY nominated for Best Reggae Album (2015) featuring the Afro Dancehall mashup - African Thriller - which continues to make serious waves around the world. We’re delighted to present this iconic artist and his band at HIFA 2017!

"Rocky's music is creative inspiration that knows no boundaries."
Ziggy Marley

"All in all, Dawuni takes another step up the proverbial ladder... spearheading world releases with indelible style and grace."

"This is an album that has definitely been worth the wait from a musician and singer whose star is on the rise."
