Rocky Dawuni jets off to Costa Rica for Concert after 65th Grammys

Rocky Dawuni

Fresh off of his 3rd GRAMMY nomination, Ghana’s revolutionary music star and activist, Rocky Dawuni is headed to Costa Rica for a series of concerts and events.  On March 4th, Rocky is scheduled to perform at the one of the biggest festivals in Costa Rica, Envision Festival, which is bringing artists from all of the world for 8 days of music, dance, yoga and workshops on the Pacific Coast. He will be sharing the stage alongside artists like Bonobo, California Honeydrops, Rising Appalachia and many more.
Envision’s mission is to create an eye-opening experience that turns us onto a new form of living; a new way to be inspired. To provide tools that can be integrated into the life we are already living or to inspire a complete shift in our life path. The connection to nature can be felt in every aspect of Envision and the ripple effect of what people then take away from the festival is much more potent than just a good party.”  The Ghanaian musician is also scheduled to lead a workshop focusing on music, activism and current global issues on Sunday, March 5th at Envision.

Rocky will then head to the Caribbean side of the country for a series of cultural events including headlining the historic “International Concert Against Racism” that is scheduled to take place at the Plaze de Deportes in Playa Negra Cahuita on March 8th at 5pm. The concert is being spearheaded by the former Vice President of Costa Rica, Epsy Campbell. As a musician whose intention is to create spiritual and cultural bridges between Africa and the Afro Descendent Diaspora, this concert provides an opportunity to raise awareness of the important contributions of people of African descent of across the Americas.

Rocky Dawuni states; “In a time when issues of black people and people of color are increasingly being diminished. There is a need to amplify and empower our collective voice as a means to define our future. Elevating the music and the cultural connection will be key to harmonizing our intentions towards this prime objective.”

In regards to Rocky’s tour, Epsy Campbell, former Vice President of Costa Rica, stated “we will hold in Costa Rica, the first “International Concert Against Racism,” organized by the Global Coalition Against Systemic Racism on March 8th, 2023. Our goal is to raise awareness and create an international community committed to eradicating racism and protecting victims of racial discrimination. We are honored to welcome Rocky Dawuni and his band from Ghana, an artist committed to the rights of Africa and its Diaspora.  Also, will have the participation as special guest the Mexican actor of the movie Wakanda Forever, Tenoch Huerta, a recognized anti-racist activist.  On the stage will be Puerto Rican musician and composer William Cepeda, Kawe Calipso and Sasha Campbell.  We are using music and art to build a new culture of respect and dignity for all people.”

Dawuni continues his efforts in bridging the cultural gap between Africa and the Diaspora with his signature “Afro Roots” sound which has played a part in the current popularity of African music around the world. Having been the first Ghanaian to be nominated for a GRAMMY and now having been nominated in three different GRAMMY categories (Branches of The Same Tree for “Best Reggae Album” in 2016, Voice of Bunbon, Vol. 1 for “Best Global Music Album” 2022, and Neva Bow Down featuring Blvk H3ro for “Best Global Music Performance” 2023), Rocky continues to innovate at the forefront of Ghanaian music’s global expansion with a sonic palette that fuses West African Highlife, traditional African music, Afrobeat, Jamaican Roots Reggae sounds, Soul, Pop and more.

What’s up next for Africa’s shining star…stay tuned.
