Veteran Ghanaian reggae singer and roots rocker Rocky Dawuni is playing a show next Thurs., Aug. 13 at the David Rubenstein Atrium at Lincoln Center with vinyl-spinning DJ Sweet V. Dawuni’s latest album, Branches of the Same Tree, was released by Cumbancha this past spring, and Afropop’s Katherine Cohen called it “a cohesive, coherent vision, expertly executed.” Dawuni is both a singer and a committed humanitarian activist, who serves as U.N. Ambassador for the Global Alliance for Clean Cookstoves.
The show is free, but if you email us at email@example.com with the subject “Rocky Dawuni” and your name you could also win a pair of VIP tickets to the event.
