Rocky Dawuni & the revelation project


Rocky Dawuni is one of Africa’s most popular musicians and his legendary performances have brought global fame and acclaim.

Rocky is now set to bring his groovalicious live reggae to the opening of L.A.’s Grand Performances’ season at California Plaza with two free downtown performances at 12 Noon and 8pm - on Friday July 10, 2009 with an outrageous 11 piece band with very special guests sitting in!!

July 10th marks Rocky’s first appearance in the U.S. since his smash visit to the Balispirit Festival and Hard Rock Hotel Bali in Indonesia and he will head to Europe to tour Germany, Austria and France immediately following the Grand Performances’ shows.

Rocky just finished his 5th studio recording titled “Hymns for the Rebel Soul” which is currently set for release in late 2009. The album’s lead track, “Download the Revolution,” has already been licensed by video game giant EA for their FIFA 2010 video game.

Dawuni also has two tracks on the Top 20 “Playing for Change: Songs Around the World” compilation, including a cover of “War” by Bob Marley which also features Bono and an international cast of musicians.



When not playing on some of the world’s largest festival stages, Rocky is involved with UNICEF, Product (RED), The Carter Center and The Global Fund and other pro-active humanitarian, social and environmental organizations- in his belief and commitment to create positive and sustainable change. Converse (RED) just released his custom designed shoe - dubbed “Wheels of Change” - as part of the Converse “1Hundred Series” with proceeds supporting the UN Global Funds effort to provide antiretroviral medication for people suffering from HIV / AIDS in Africa.

Don’t miss this amazing live performance by Ghana’s shining star, Rocky Dawuni!!
