Sierra Leone’s Refugee All Stars are a group of musicians who escaped the violence of Sierra Leone’s civil war. The band formed at a West African refugee camp to keep their spirits and hopes alive. Since then, they have become an international musical sensation, playing at South by Southwest, NPR’s World Café, Bonnaroo and Fuji Rock in Japan. Their remarkable story and music has been featured on The Oprah Winfrey Show, CNN International and PBS.
