An extraordinary transformation happened in a refugee camp just outside Sierra Leone when a group of musicians formed a band after fleeing their homeland racked by years of warfare. They are Sierra Leone's Refugee All Stars. The IRC has been with them from the beginning of their journey, from their time in refugee camps, to the debut of the documentary Sierra Leone's Refugee All Stars, and now for their tour around the country as they promote their new album, Rise and Shine, a fusion of traditional West African music and roots reggae.
The IRC will be there with information on how you can help refugees like the All Stars both abroad and right here in New York City. Come find us at the show and learn more about our cause.
