Video Of The Day: Sierra Leone's Refugee All Stars

"Sierra Leone's Refugee All Stars - Rise & Shine Preview" from Cumbancha on Vimeo.

All kinds of circumstances get musicians together and facilitate creativity. In the case of Sierra Leone's Refugee All Stars, that circumstance was West African refugee camps. While their homeland was devastated during a period of violent bloodshed, these musicians made the best of a bad situation and formed their band. This video isn't new, but it's too good to pass up sharing. Exploring what music teaches us about both culture and travel is a particular interest of mine, so this video resonates with me. No matter the negative, positive energy can survive in any type of situation.
