Revivalist's African Jazz Issue: Sierra Leone's Refugee Allstars


Today Revivalist reveals their feature story on Sierra Leone's Refugee Allstars - a group of inspired musicians who first came together at a refugee camp during Sierra Leone's brutal 11 year war.  Using music as a form of healing, inspiration, and to affect positive change, the Refugee Allstars have also been the subject of a wonderful documentary (think Buena Vista Social Club).  They are currently working on their next project, an album heavily produced by Victor Axelrod of Antibalas fame.  For more on their story, and some amazing live video, check out the Revivalist now.
