Sierra Leone’s Refugee All Stars Come to Tucson
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. They've known the horrors of war firsthand and have become ambassadors of peace. An unbelievable testament to the human spirit, the journey of Sierra Leone's Refugee All Stars exemplifies the universal healing power of music. Come join us on May 1st in Tucson as we listen to their music and reflect on how in the worst of crises, the best of humanity rises.
