Rocky Dawuni + DJ Drez

Rocky Dawuni – Ghanaian musician and activist straddles the boundaries between Africa, the Caribbean and the U.S. to create his appealing Afro Roots sound that unites generations and cultures. A galvanizing performer, Dawuni has shared the stage with Stevie Wonder, Peter Gabriel, Bono, Jason Mraz, Janelle Monae and John Legend, among many others. Named one of Africa’s Top 10 global stars by CNN, he has showcased his talent at prestigious venues such as The Kennedy Center, Lincoln Center and The Hollywood Bowl.   Influenced by the soulful beats of Fela Kuti, the positive messages of Bob Marley and the infectious, sing-along anthems of Michael Franti and K’naan – Rocky Dawuni’s sixth album, Branches of the Same Tree, was released by Cumbancha in 2015 and was nominated for a GRAMMY for “Best Reggae Album” for the 58th Annual GRAMMY Awards. The first single “African Thriller” and striking accompanying video have been making serious waves around the world! 
DJ Drez is in demand as a producer, musical director and sound ambassador. A master of his craft in the studio and on stage, Drez cuts and composes profoundly original tracks that facilitate body movement practice of all forms— be it dance, yoga asana or after-hours intimate/ecstatic.http:///
