Sierra Leone’s Refugee All Stars - Rise & Shine Preview
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 forthcoming 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).
Watch the PBS trailer (graphic content warning).
Sounds for a Monday afternoon.
