Since its US release in late May 2010 on Aquarian Records, the album has enjoyed rave reviews across various media, with virtually all of the tracks on the album enjoying extensive airplay and charting on various radio stations across the US.

The album is currently #11 on the CMJ World Charts that monitors airplay across the over 200 radio stations that report to these charts.

Dawuni launched a West Coast tour in the US in early July 2010, with show-stopping performances at The Waterfront Theatre in Marina Del Rey and headlining the esteemed Esalen World Music in Big Sur, CA and the WorldOne Festival in Berkeley, CA before launching his current European tour.

The European leg of the concerts has met very enthusiastic crowds from Germany to Austria to Finland, including his unbelievable headlining performance at the massive Africa Tage Festival in Vienna Austria on August 15th. He is now off to Liverpool, England on August 23 for their ‘Slavery Remembrance Day’ celebrations followed by a performance at the renowned Limetree Music & Arts Festival on August 29.

Rocky Dawuni will then be back in the US for a large-scale free show at Levitt Pavilion in Macarthur Park in Los Angeles on September 5th, followed by a live performance on the very influential ‘Morning Becomes Eclectic’ with DJ Jason Bentley on KCRW 89.9 on September 8, 2010.

His amazing remixes from the album with the likes of DJ J-Boogie, DJ Obah, DJ Jeremy Sole & DJ Drez are gaining momentum worldwide in the clubs and on radio.
‘Hymns from the Rebels Soul’ is currently available on ITunes and in other fine stores in the US.

Rocky is also featured on the brand new Putumayo release ‘Tribute to a Reggae Legend’, with his genre bending rendition of Bob Marley’s ‘Sun is Shining.’
