Rocky Dawuni - Hymns For The Rebel Soul -2010-
(Reggae, Roots, Afro-Beat)

From: Ghana

Hailed as Ghana's 'Bob Marley' Rocky Dawuni has inspired and will continue to inspire generations of artists and fans alike with his music and diligent support of many social causes. Hymns for the Rebel Soul is Rocky's 5th studio album and has been exclusively released through Whole Foods Market. This new 11 song album was inspired and written over the course of his travels around the world particularly Israel, Finland, Jamaica, U.S. and Ghana in his quest to articulate and craft a record that reflected the common spiritual, political and social aspirations of ordinary folks around the world. Dawuni's music was featured at this year's World Cup and he is also involved in the fantastic Playing For Change which you can see below. Rocky Dawuni’s progressive fusion of Reggae, Soul and traditional African sounds are well displayed on this newest album. Any lover of reggae needs to pick up this eclectic mix.
