VIDEO: Bajah + the Dry Eye Crew on CNN


On CNN today: Bajah + the Dry Eye Crew's stories of the war in Sierra Leone, their budding US career, and what one guy has to say about how good they is.

Having just arrived back from touring their homeland, DC folks can head to the Kennedy Center tonight to check them. Later this summer, they will be gracing the stage at an impressive number of UK festivals (dates after the jump). Look out this fall for their international debut album - and stay tuned for more US dates (and possibly...shhhh...their welcome back extravaganza).
