Sierra Leone's Refugee All Stars - Belly Up on May 11
Sierra Leone’s Refugee All Stars Come to Solana Beach
Music can keep spirits up and hopes alive; it can be a healing and renewing force. 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 & Shine, a fusion of traditional West African music and roots reggae.
Come join us on May 11th in Solana Beach as we listen to their music and reflect on how in the worst of crises, the best of humanity rises. The IRC will be there with information on how you can help refugees like the All Stars both abroad and right here in San Diego. Come find us at the show and learn more about our cause.
