Sierra Leone's Refugee All Stars



Sierra Leone's Refugee All Stars


This is a really great album of Afrobeat and Reggae recorded by refugees from the hideous, long running civil war in Sierra Leone. Recorded in refugee camps in Guinea, it really captures the raw power of this music in its purest state.

Buy the Album

You can hear the songs streaming from their website: refugeeallstars.org

There is also a documentary about the making of the album available on DVD which has one a bunch of awards.

This award winning film chronicles the life of Sierra Leone's Refugee All Stars, a group of six Sierra Leonean musicians who come together to form a band while living as refugees in the Republic of Guinea. Forced from their homes in Sierra Leone, the members of the band represent the thousands of untold stories that exist amongst the survivors of the Sierra Leonean civil war.
