Sierra Leone's Refugee All-Stars Return To Birmingham + New Album!

For the follow up to their acclaimed debut, Living Like a Refugee, Sierra Leone's Refugee All Stars began recording in their hometown of Freetown, Sierra Leone then traveled to New Orleans, Louisiana. Rise & Shine reflects how far the band has come in the past few years, realizing a unique and seamlessly coherent sound: a fusion of traditional West African music and roots reggae, inflected with New Orleans styles. The album’s 13 tracks embrace the wide array of musical influences the All Stars have encountered on their rise to international fame. To purchase the album, read about their inspiring story, download the free track, and learn more about the documentary film that helped propel them to international attention, please click the links.

Be sure to catch them at Workplay Theater on
Saturday May 1, 2010 8:00 pm with DJ Coco. Purchase tickets here.
The fam and I saw them at the Carver Theater a couple of years back and I am guaranteeing this to be a great show :)
