Rocky Dawuni To Headline Costa Rica Music Festival

Ghanaian revolutionary musician and activist Rocky Dawuni is headed to Costa Rica for a series of concerts and events. He will be the main act at this year’s Envision Festival, which is the most well-known music event in the country on an international level.

On Sunday, March 5th, the Ghanaian musician will also be hosting a workshop at Envision that will concentrate on the intersection of music, dance, yoga, activism, and important global issues. He will be sharing the stage alongside artists like Bonobo, California Honeydrops, Rising Appalachia, and many more.

“Envision’s mission is to create an eye-opening experience that turns us onto a new form of living; a new way to be inspired. To provide tools that can be integrated into the life we are already living or to inspire a complete shift in our life path. The connection to nature can be felt in every aspect of Envision and the ripple effect of what people then take away from the festival is much more potent than just a good party.”

After that, Rocky will go to the Caribbean side of the country for a number of cultural events, including the historic “International Concert Against Racism,” which will take place at the Plaze de Deportes in Playa Negra Cahuita on March 8th.

The Grammy Nominee, whose mission is to unite the African continent and the diaspora of people of African descent, stated that: “In a time when issues of black people and people of colour are increasingly being diminished. There is a need to amplify and empower our collective voice as a means to define our future. Elevating the music and the cultural connection will be key to harmonising our intentions towards this prime objective.”

For more than a decade, the Envision Festival has been one of the most innovative music festivals in Costa Rica. It strives to create an eye-opening experience for its attendees, who come from all over the world to join the eclectic Envision community.

The former Vice President of Costa Rica, Epsy Campbell who put together concert said “we will hold in Costa Rica, the first “International Concert Against Racism,” organized by the Global Coalition Against Systemic Racism on March 8th, 2023. Our goal is to raise awareness and create an international community committed to eradicating racism and protecting victims of racial discrimination. We are honored to welcome Rocky Dawuni and his band from Ghana, an artist committed to the rights of Africa and its Diaspora. Also, will have the participation as special guest the Mexican actor of the movie Wakanda Forever, Tenoch Huerta, a recognized anti-racist activist. On the stage will be Puerto Rican musician and composer William Cepeda, Kawe Calipso and Sasha Campbell. We are using music and art to build a new culture of respect and dignity for all people.”
