Ghana native Rocky Dawuni has a global outlook, both as a musician and a humanitarian — roles that quite often overlap. The acclaimed singer’s latest record, Branches of the Same Tree, urges peace, unity and understanding amid a soulful, groove-laden fusion of Afrobeat and reggae. As a cultural ambassador, he has championed countless important causes in Africa and beyond, working with the likes of UNICEF and the Carter Center. Clearly, Dawuni practices what he preaches. He’ll be at ArtsRiot in Burlington with a full band this Friday, November 20.
