He also covers Peter Tosh’s classic “Get Up Stand Up,” putting an Afrobeat spin on it with lyrics sung with a Ghanian patois. Strong Dawuni originals include the modern reggae pop of “African Thriller” and the uplifting “Shine a Light.” Ziggy Marley, Steel Pulse, Michael Franti, and Ben Harper make guest appearances.
