Ghana’s international music star Rocky Dawuni has leveraged his popularity within and without of the continent to champion social causes and inspire a generation of artists and fans alike. Dawuni’s eloquence as well as his successful melding of musical celebrity and social action has made him a spokesperson for various causes worldwide. Rocky’s 5th studio album, “Hymns for the Rebel Soul” was pre-released through Whole Foods Market in the United States in late 2009 and was officially released on May 25, 2010 by AQUARIAN Records.  Rock Paper Scissors, Giant Step and the Sanford Company have all gotten behind the title which has been charting heavily on CMJ.  The 11 song album was inspired and written over the course of his travels around the world particularly Israel, Finland, Jamaica, U.S. and Ghana in his quest to articulate and craft a record that reflected the common spiritual, political and social aspirations of ordinary folks around the world.

These events come on the heels of the Ghanaian stars recent two month European tour, his show stopping performance at the Levitt Pavilion in Los Angeles and his critically acclaimed appearance on the influential KCRW’s “Morning Becomes Eclectic” radio show with Jason Bentley.
