Sierra Leone's Refugee All Stars
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; 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.
