Rocky Dawuni, the international music star / global ambassador and activist, released his highly anticipated 7th studio album “Beats of Zion” through Six Degrees Distribution in the spring of 2019.
The thirteen-track set follows the GRAMMY nominated album “Branches of the Same Tree” (“Best Reggae Album” in 2016) and expands Rocky’s “Afro Roots” sound to include the diversity of the Ghanaian music scene and its current global outreach.
In a time when divisive rhetoric is on the rise and the political climate prefers to build walls over bridges, Rocky’s album “Beats of Zion” is a refreshing message about global unity and a worldview of oneness.
Rocky passionately states, “We live in a time when the elements of international morality need to be proclaimed as a guiding principle for how we engage and deal with each other, between individuals, between communities and among nations.
It is a time for global mobilization for action on challenging socio-political issues like the environment and the refugee crisis. Beats of Zion is the drumbeat of war against apathy and re-energizing the forces of love and hope.” He concludes, “Beats of Zion is the rhythm of change beating from a distance and getting louder to awaken positive consciousness.”
