Sierra Leone's Refugee All Stars
Another contender for my top albums of the year.
Sierra Leone's Refugee All Stars (also called Refugee All Stars) is a band from Sierra Leone which was formed by a group of refugees displaced to Guinea during the Sierra Leone Civil War. Since their return to Freetown in 2004, the band has toured extensively to raise awareness for humanitarian causes. Their story is documented in the 2005 documentary film Sierra Leone's Refugee All Stars.

This is pure feel good music. I can't help but be happy when I listen to this.
An amazing mix of reggae and West African music . It doesn't matter if they are singing in English or a variety of African languages...the music tells the story and takes you on fantastic voyage.
Here is their newest album, 'Libation'. I've had this on repeat in the car for days now. Perfect summer music.
Check out their other albums below .
