Sierra Leone Refugee All Stars Spring 2011 U.S. Tour

Kushe everyone!

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.)
