mathirie20 Ever since I saw the moving documentary, ‘Sierra Leone’s Refugee Allstars’, I was hooked on the Allstars’ infectious fusion of African and Caribbean rhythms. Another magnificent and uplifting album from these musical ambassadors

Moni Solid afro-reggae in the style of Alpha Blondy and Majek Fashek with a bit of highlife and other flavors. Brilliant live show! Favorite track: Rich But Poor.

Africa’s most inspirational band celebrates ten years together with its finest album to date. Libation’s “around-the-campfire” intimacy, honest soulfulness, and technical prowess reveal how far the group has come while remaining true to its roots.

Produced by Chris Velan and mixed by Iestyn Polson, known for his work with David Gray, Patti Smith, and David Bowie, Libation embodies the contagious joy, optimism in the face of struggle and love for their fellow man that has earned the All Stars a devoted following across the globe.

Sierra Leone’s Refugee All Stars proudly celebrate the 10-year anniversary of their astounding and uplifting career on their fourth studio album, Libation. For these beautiful recordings, they go back full circle to the rootsy, acoustic, “around the campfire” sound that appeared on their first album, much of which was recorded in the refugee camps during their years in exile from Sierra Leone.

Back then, the group was in a very different frame of mind, had yet to tour the world, and were still raw in their sound. Over the years they have grown and evolved to become one of the world’s premiere African bands. This album demonstrates and celebrates how far they have come as a group, both in terms of their now-signature sweet songwriting and crisp performances.

It’s a family reunion as well, as they reunite with Chris Velan, a producer on their debut release. The new album was recorded in the Green Mountains of Vermont and mixed in London by Velan and renowned British producer Iestyn Polson, known for his work with David Gray, Patti Smith, David Bowie and others.

This momentous recording celebrates, embodies and radiates the joy, passion for music and love for their fellow man that have made Sierra Leone’s Refugee All Stars a living testament to the resilience of the human spirit and an inspiration to hundreds of thousands of people across the globe over the last ten years.
