Description

Formed in a refugee camp during Sierra Leone’s civil war, Sierra Leone’s Refugee All Stars’ incredible story is documented in the award winning, compelling and emotionally-driven film, _Sierra Leone’s Refugee All Stars. Initial support for the film came from executive producers Steve Bing and Shelley Lazar as well as Keith Richards, Paul McCartney, and Angelina Jolie. The resulting studio album, Living Like A Refugee_ (Anti Records 2006), is one of the most acclaimed world music releases of the past few years, garnering the band international acclaim and high profile fans including Aerosmith, who the All Stars have collaborated with in concert and in the studio.

SLRAS has been featured on The Oprah Winfrey Show along with our boy Leonardo DiCaprio, who was promoting_ Blood Diamond, _which is set in Sierra Leone, as well as on CNN International PBS’s P.O.V. Series and CBS Sunday Morning as well as NPR’s World Café and_ _a special piece with vocalist Black Nature on MTV’s _Cause Effect. _

This band’s story is incredible and they are great live! All the members of Sierra Leone’s Refugee All Stars lived in or near Sierra Leone’s capital city before fleeing Freetown during the country’s decade-long civil war. The band has performed featured sets at Bonnaroo, Kennedy Center, Montreal Jazz Festival, headlining Summerstage in New York’s Central Park, among other jazz, folk, rock and world music festivals.
