"Performing his self-described 'Afro-roots' sound, a fusion of reggae and Afro Beat groove, few artists have a more positive vibe than Rocky. His show is an incandescent Afro-roots dance party."
– LA Weekly
Influenced by the soulful beats of Afrobeat legend Fela Kuti, the positive messages and deep grooves of Bob Marley and the infectious, sing-along anthems of Michael Franti, K'naan and Matisyahu, Rocky Dawuni's songs straddle the musical boundaries between Africa, the Caribbean and the US to create a universally appealing sound that unites generations and cultures.
Rocky Dawuni's Cumbancha album, Branches of the Same Tree was nominated for a GRAMMY for Best Reggae Album. Dawuni is the first musician from Ghana to ever receive a GRAMMY nomination. He is also only the second African to be nominated in this category.
