“I remember totally being drawn to the words and also the message and intentions of the music,” Rocky Dawuni told CNN of his first exposure to Bob Marley’s socially conscious strains. From the moment he heard a military band playing reggae music at a barracks in his native Ghana, he says, he was hooked. Since then, the singer-songwriter has released six albums, exciting audiences around the globe with his universal message of unity and hope set to a blend of African, Caribbean and American sounds. Positive vibes rule when the Stevie Wonder collaborator hits the ArtsRiot stage with infectious grooves from 2015’s Branches of the Same Tree.

Price: $12.
