GRAMMY nominated Afro Roots Songwriter/Singer, Producer and activist, Rocky Dawuni, is releasing a brand-new EP on October 30, 2020 entitled “Voice of Bunbon Vol. 1” The EP is available for Pre-Save & Pre-Order at: https://tinyurl.com/yy7xo2nf
According to Rocky, “these new songs were born out of my desire to present and project music that is rooted in the deep cultural traditions of Ghana yet presented in way that it can relate to the modern world. Bunbon is my home town in Northern Ghana. My musical career has always been firmly inspired by my upbringing in the royal family of Bunbon and being educated in the indigenous ways. This exposure to cultural appreciation has served as an important part of my world view and music. My vision for this EP is to present a globalized version of African culture. It also represents my maturity over the years as a voice for social consciousness. In a time of uncertainty, we need songs and hymns that can touch our emotional nerve and remind us that love and hope are an indestructible aspect of the human experience that no amount of fear can take away.”
After a successful release of his previous full-length album Beats of Zion in 2019 which received a global recognition with five incredible music videos filmed in Ghana, India and USA among other countries, he decides to bless his fans and the world with this 8 tracks EP. Rocky’s move back home, Ghana is evident in this latest offering which explores contemporary aspects of local music in a creative quest to extend its global appeal.
Dawuni once again displays his “Afro Roots” style fused with modern and traditional musical trends in Ghana and across the continent. “Voice of Bunbon” is a compilation of different sounds and genres ranging from acoustic to beat and a blend of Afrobeats, Highlife, Reggae, Soul and Pop among others. This EP carries words of hope, love, resilience, faith, joy and empowerment urging the listeners to deliberate on current issues.
