This is a very strong album, a quality production; the booklet, the musicianship, and the actual production. Some background to the name. Sierra Leone is a West African nation bordered by Guinea and Liberia and like Liberia it has had a succession of Governments and has suffered
horrific civil war with resultant fleeing of population. Some of these band members have seen more in their lifetime than any human might expect. Two have lost their limbs, one saw his family executed. The band formed out of refugee camps with Canadian refugee aid and UNHCR assistance. Yet despite it all their music is optimistic, buoyant and exhilarating. It resonates and pulses with life.

The musicianship both vocally and instrumentally is impressive. Their reggae could well be the best outside Jamaica, rootsy and not turgid as some reggae gets, but very danceable. The African material whether traditional or (for example) the fast soukous style of Tamagbondorsu (The Rich Mock The Poor) has the percussive complexity and vocal call and response harmonies you might expect. All tracks except two were recorded in studio at New Orleans and Freetown, Sierra Leone. The excellent production is by saxophonist Steve Berlin whose credentials include Los Lobos, Angelique Kidjo, Michelle Shocked, John Lee Hooker, Leo Kottke, Rickie Lee Jones and Ozomatli.

All tracks are written and sung by various band members except Oruwiebe/Magazine Bobo which is traditional being a blend of "secret society'' meeting song and spiritual incantations, and Bute Vange, a medley of traditional songs recorded live in Japan. The informative and attractive booklet contains lyrics both in Sierra Leone's predominant tongue, Krio, and English.

The band brilliantly combines traditional and contemporary music styles to create a timeless classic. Reggae, traditional styles of Sierra Leone, influences of Caribbean music, play of voices and instruments. Watch the DVD on their story: Sierra Leone's Refugee All Stars. This album is a great deal. And if you get an opportunity to see them - they're touring now- don't miss them. Their live performance, and this CD, will get you dancing, or at least moving your whole body. I had an opportunity to see them live, and danced, and watched the band dance. It was uplifting, healing, and entrancing. My heart danced with joy, then lied down, at peace and love. It's my new favorite album.
