From Executive Producer Ice Cube, this Inspirational, Acclaimed Award-Winner, Praised by Icons such as Paul McCartney and Keith Richards, is Timed to Coincide With the Release of the Band’s New Album and International Tour

NEW YORK, NY — After being forced from their homes by a brutal, decade-long civil war, six Sierra Leonean musicians found an unlikely form of healing to deal with losing everything — they formed a band. The band’s sound — a mixture of home-grown West African beats, roots-reggae and Western-influenced R&B combined with heartfelt lyrics which condemn war and encourage social change — gave hope to their countrymen and has been praised around the world, leading to the band’s first U.S. tour this summer. Sierra Leone’s Refugee All Stars chronicles the courageous band over three years, from Guinean refugee camps back to their war-ravaged homeland, as they spread a message of peace and tolerance. Serving as a unique tribute to the power of music and the celebration of the human spirit, this award-winning film from directors Zach Niles and Banker White, is be available on DVD now.

Sierra Leone’s Refugee All Stars follows band mates Reuben Koroma, Francis “Franco� Langba, Efuah Grace, Mohammed Bangura, Arahim Kamara and Alhadji “Black Nature� Kamara through their tour of local refugee camps, debut
recording sessions and a painful return to their country for the first time since the war.
