Legendary Ghanaian reggae artist, Rocky Dawuni, is set to join a lineup of international artists slated to perform at the Music Haven 2023 Festival.
Dawuni is slated to perform on July 9th.
According to organisers, the multi-Grammy nominated Ghanaian artist will deliver a mixture of Reggae, Afrobeat, Highlife, and Soul music.
“An international star and champion of social causes, Dawuni straddles Africa, the Caribbean Islands, and the United States, and is a United Nations Goodwill Ambassador for the Environment for Africa. Opening for him is Zorkie Nelson and Umoja Drummers, thumping out beats on authentic handmade instruments,” Music Haven 2023 organisers wrote.
The Music Haven festival comes off in July and August 2023 at Central Park in Schenectady.
Music Haven 2023 will take listeners 50,000 miles and back while presenting music and performing arts from Ghana, Andalusia, Ireland, Texas, Gambia, Louisiana, South Asia, Georgia, Stratford-upon-Avon, and beyond.
“This summer, our musical journeys will cross seven distinct bodies of water—The Atlantic and Indian Oceans; the Alboran, Black, Mediterranean, and Arabian Seas; and the Bay of Bengal” says Eddie Award-winning Producing Artistic Director Mona Golub.
“We’ll gather to hear spectacular global artists who have not played these parts before, welcome back some old friends who have dazzled the world since they last graced our stage, and showcase, as special guests, some of the finest talents our region has to offer.” he added.
