Last week Friday, I covered a concert by Sierra Leone’s Refugee All Stars for This is Africa.

Short blurb about it here.

Photos from the show here.

I also interviewed the bandleader, Reuben Koroma last month. If you don’t know anything about the band, they were formed in refugee camps in Guinea after escaping the Civil War in Sierra Leone. He spoke to me about his experiences in refugee camps, how the band got together, his musical influences, what he listens to, and the band’s experiences opening for Aerosmith and appearing on the Oprah Winfrey show.
