International reggae star, Rocky Dawuni announces the release of his highly anticipated 7th studio album. The album is Beats of Zion and comes out March 8th, 2019 via Six Degrees Distribution.
The thirteen-track set follows the GRAMMY-nominated album Branches of the Same Tree. Moreover, it expands Rocky’s “Afro Roots” sound to include the diversity of the Ghanaian music scene
Furthermore, Rocky’s travels around the world shaped the new album Beats of Zion. He elaborates,
“Beats of Zionwas born out of my desire to use my diverse global musical influences and exposure to various traditions. Moreover, this was in order to paint a multi-cultural musical vision of the world that I perceive. The beginning of the year saw me visit Ethiopia and India. In Ethiopia, I visited Lalibela, witnessing ancient Christian rites and my journeys in India also exposed me to its diverse spiritual culture and the shared similarities I saw to Africa.”
“The title Beats of Zion” is inspired by a vision of the drumbeat of awareness and elevation of consciousness; a musical call to arms for my audience to be proactive in this day and age as to each person’s responsibility to be an active instrument for positive change.”
