From a media relase - this band got together at a refugee camp, just as their name implies:
Sierra Leone Refugee All Stars Spring 2011 U.S. Tour
Sierra Leone's Refugee All Stars are ready to roll again and we're celebrating Sierra Leone's 50th Anniversary of Independence by setting out on The Positive Revolution Tour. Everyone on our side is beyond excited to get back on stage and dancing with you all. Along the way, we'll be sharing the stage with our friends Toubab Krewe, Chris Velan and more! Check the tour dates below and check back at the link as new dates are being added all the time.
• We're also happy to be sharing the FREE DOWNLOAD of the song "Iñez" that we recorded with Chris Velan to raise awareness of WeOwnTV. (At the link, you'll be able to listen and get the download from the menu bar.)
• WeOwnTV is part of the extended All Stars family and we'll be talking about them more soon but for now, grab the track in the link above.
And finally - NPR is now featuring the All Stars' very cool Tiny Desk Concert. It was a blast to record and we're happy to share it with you. Check it out and spread the good word!
