Reggea tónlistarmaðurinn Rocky Dawuni kemur fram ásamt hljómsveit á tónleikum í Gamla bíó sunnudaginn 30. ágúst.
Rocky Dawuni er mikils virtur tónlistamaður víða um heim en hann notar tónlistina til þess að berjast fyrir mannréttindum, koma skilaboðum sínum á framfæri ásamt því að tengja fólk af ólíkum menningarheimum. Hann er aktivisti sem berst fyrir friðaruppbyggingu og mannréttindamálum í Afríku, en sjálfur er hann frá Ghana. Hann er m.a. sendiherra Sameinuðu Þjóðanna og talsmaður fleiri hjálparsamtaka.
Tónlist hans er undir áhrifum listamanna á borð við Fela Kuti, Bob Marley, Michael Franti, K'naan og Matisyahu og hefur Rocky gefið út 6 plötur, sú síðasta í mars á þessu ári og heitir hún Branches of the Same Tree. Rocky Dawuni var á lista CNN yfir topp 10 tónlistarmenn frá Afríku og hefur hann deilt sviði með stjörnum eins og Stevie Wonder, Peter Gabriel, Bono, Jason Mraz Janelle Monae og John Legend. Þá hefur tónlist hans m.a. hljómað í sjónvarpsþáttunum ER, Weeds og Dexter sem og í tölvuleikjum FIFA.
Það er ekki á hverjum degi sem virtur erlendur reggea listamaður leggur leggur leið sína til Íslands og er þetta viðburður sem enginn aðdáandi reggea og afrobeat tónlistar með sál ætti að láta framhjá sér fara.
Að tilefni komu þessa heimsþekkta tónlistarmanns ætlar Gamla bíó að efna til reggea dags 30. ágúst fyrir alla fjölskylduna. Ein vinsælasta hljómsveit Íslands um þessar mundir, AmabAdamA, mun halda tónleika fyrir yngstu kynslóðirna kl. 16.00 og einnig hita upp fyrir tónleika Rocky Dawuni sem hefjast kl. 21.00 sama dag. Forsala á tónleika Rocky Dawuni verður föstudaginn 7. júlí – sunnudagsins 9. júlí þar sem miðarnir verða á sérstöku tilboði, aðeins 2.900 kr. Almenn miðasala hefst svo mánudaginn 10. júlí. Miðaverð á fjölskyldutónleikana er 1000 kr.
