Sierra Leone’s Refugee All Stars / Sierra Leone


Sierra Leones Refugee All Stars started playing music together in West African refugee camps while their homeland was being racked by years of bloody warfare. Since then, audiences around the world have embraced the band and their utterly extraordinary story.

On their album, Rise & Shine, the All Stars sound, as well as their biography, evolves further; the music finds them establishing an identity based as much on skill, imagination and charisma as on their undeniably touching story (The Los Angeles Times). Cumbancha released the album on March 23, 2010. For a better presentation of the band and its members check out the documentary clip at the end of this post.

They have a new album to be released in march 2012. to read about it click here
