WATCH – Rocky Dawuni delves into his Highlife Music Roots in New Video “Woara”

Rocky Dawuni’s brand new video “Woara” explores the foundations of Ghanaian Highlife music which forms the roots of Rocky Dawuni’s “Afro Roots” sound. 

 The style of “Woara” is anchored in the Palm Wine variant of Highlife music which was popularized by artists such as the legendary Koo Nimo.

The track features Highlife guitar great, Ackah Blay and Ghanaian beat maker Wei Ye Oteng. Dawuni releases this picturesque video right before the GRAMMY voting season begins.  

“Woara” is the third video off of Rocky Dawuni’s critically acclaimed EP “Voice of Bunbon, Vol. 1 which is a candidate in the Global Music category.

“Woara” which means “you or it’s you” is sung in the local Akan dialect of Twi from Ghana.

It is a love song that uses its call and response style to express the beauty and triumph of being in love.

In a time when many people around the world are dealing with challenging circumstances, a simple feel-good song about love is what we all need to uplift our spirits. 

The beautiful video for “Woara” was shot by Slingshot at the exquisite Villa Terranga which is located on the western edge of the capital city of Accra over-looking Bojo Beach.

The picturesque setting of the Weija River also served as a backdrop to the love story of the song.

As an environmental ambassador, Rocky uses this opportunity to also highlight the importance of promoting the natural environment and clean water sources.

The video also hints at promoting traditional African beauty concepts and natural lifestyles which was supported by the Global African beauty brand, Alaffia. Rocky’s elegant clothing for the video shoot was designed by Ghanaian cutting-edge fashion brand, Black & Phamous.

The video was co-produced by Cary Sullivan and Elorm Beenie.
