Rocky Dawuni?s new album ?Branches of the Same Tree?, released on March 31, 2015 is already making strides with several reviews after official release.
The 11-track album selling on iTunes, Amazon, Cumbancha.com and others is a masterpiece that mirrors a lot on the African story with fusion of Reggae, Afrobeats & Soul. International music star and humanitarian activist Rocky Dawuni straddles the musical boundaries between Africa, the Caribbean and the U.S. to create an appealing “Afro-Roots” sound that unites generations and cultures. Filled with uplifting and irresistible songs, Rocky’s 6th album, and first on Cumbancha, blends inspirations from his diverse experiences while expanding on his identity as an artist, a proud son of Africa and as a true world citizen.
Rocky, born Ghanaian, resident in the USA has consistently remained one of Ghana?s foremost musical talents on the international front.
?Rocky?s music is a creative inspiration that has no boundaries.? ? says Ziggy Marley
“Few artists have a more positive vibe than Rocky. His show is an incandescent Afro-Roots dance party.? ? LA Weekly
?His influence has been widespread, working with Bono and Stevie Wonder while his songs are consistently featured in popular American television shows. Rocky is one of the rare African artists to break through to a broad audience.? ? The Huffington Post
Here are 3 cuts from the album ?Island Girl?, ?Rock Your Soul? and ?Black Star? featuring Ghana?s celebrated act, Samini ? who also hails from Northern Ghana as Rocky Dawuni.
