Monday Mashup: Sierra Leone’s Refugee All Stars

In the mood for some amazing and inspirational music? Have a taste for international songs that tell a story? Looking for something to do on Saturday? Do you want to give me a cookie?

The answer to those questions should be yes, by the way (and I’ll take a chocolate chip cookie, thanks).

This weekend is our last musical performance until our summer concert series, so if you miss it, you’re out of luck for the next few months! I’ve already talked about Sierra Leone’s Refugee All Stars a few times, but that’s because what they had to go through and how they dealt with their trauma makes for an amazing story.  So watch the documentary, read the NPR articles  , take a listen and come see them this weekend.
