A potent example of the redeeming power of music and the ability of the human spirit to persevere. From their humble beginnings in West African refugee camps, Sierra Leone’s Refugee All Stars have risen to acclaim with their energetic mix of old-school reggae, funky African grooves and moving tribal chants. Traumatized by the horrors of war, they continue to fight back and spread awareness with the only means they have – music.
