GRAMMY nominated Ghanaian singer, songwriter, producer and activist, Rocky Dawuni just released a new EP entitled “Voice of Bunbon, Vol. 1” “Ghost Town” from the EP will be the subject of the first video from the title which is already in heavy rotation on Southern California radio station KCRW’s influential “Morning Becomes Eclectic” program with DJ Anne Lit.
“Ghost Town” premiered on Rocky’s Facebook page and “waved” through the SINE Network at 11am PST on Thursday, November 19 and was made available via Rocky’s YouTube channel. The video was directed by Casey Bridges, son of Beau Bridges from the legendary Bridges acting family who co-directed Rocky’s beautiful “Champion Arise” video which was released earlier this year from his last full length album “Beats of Zion.”
“Ghost Town” speaks to some of the greatest challenges we face as a human family today. Rocky’s lyrics echo the refrain so many are feeling around the world at this time. His voice brings us together as he sings out from the lowest valleys to the highest peaks. Filming this video with Rocky and friends was an opportunity to collaborate with inspirational artists who share music and a vision of rising above to realize a brighter tomorrow.” – Casey Bridges
“The vision of the video was to highlight and articulate a world in crisis. It was filmed in the alleys of the Oakwood neighborhood of Venice, California often referred to as “Ghost Town” which has been dealing with massive gentrification issues. The video also visually touches on the critical issue of homelessness in America which is exacerbated by current events and which continues to elude any lasting solutions. Major parts of the video were also filmed in the Topanga / Malibu area of the scenic Santa Monica Mountains to bring a sense of hope and redemption which the song seeks to portray amidst the chaos. The final scenes of the video come full circle to an intimate backyard jam with cameo appearances by Latin GRAMMY sensation Debi Nova, Mermans Mosengo & Jason Tamba of the Playing for Change band, singer / songwriter Jillian Speer, Kenyan percussionist & DJ Oneko Arika and artist / healer Onyi Love which depicts the importance of community and the triumphant power of human connection.” – Rocky Dawuni
