I first saw Sierra Leone’s Refugee All Stars live at the 9:30 club in Washington, DC a few years ago, soon after their highly acclaimed documentary came out. They are back in town, this time performing live at Zanzibar Nightclub tonight. They are on tour to promote their new album Rise & Shine, an album recorded in Sierra Leone and New Orleans, Louisiana. They have collaborated with a number of New Orleans musicians, which has added an engaging and uplifting accent to their already positive sound. The show is promoted by Kololo Entertainment and NOSLINA (National Organization of Sierra Leoneans in North America), and will be hosted by David Vandy, VOA radio host of “African Beat.” And yes, AFROfusion will be there to bring you the best of the show. Tickets are available here. See you there!!
