Sierra Leone's Refugees All Stars-Radio Salone (2012)
Something different now (I mean really different from the bands I use to review). The Sierra Leone's Refugees All Star band started to play in refugee camps in west Africa but their music breathe with sunshine and hope. What they play is a blending of Highlife, afro-beat and reggae. Radio Salone is their second LP, it's produced by Victor Axelrod (Sharon Jones, Antibalas), and if you're into african, reggae or any "feel good music" I really recommend you try it. the meeting of african ryhtms and melodies and reggae influenced parts is interesting and works really well and it's a really enjoyable record.
