Sierra Leone Refugee All Stars coming to Vilnius


The legendary Sierra Leone Refugee All Stars return to Europe this winter for an 11-city tour with their final performance being reserved for Vilnius on 3 February at 7 p.m.. Tickets can be purchased direct from Tamsta Klubas (A. Strazdelio g.1, Vilnius).
The concert is being promoted by Running For Change – a team of six runners from Lithuania who travelled to Sierra Leone last year to run in the country’s first ever marathon. Running For Change supports the charity Street Child which works in Sierra Leone. All profits from this concert will go to supporting the construction of schools in the country (www.runningforchange.lt).
With an inspiring back story and a wildly jubilant live show, the Refugee All Stars concerts are “simply irresistible and infectious and embrace all that is best in the human spirit.” (Pop Matters).

World Music Charts Europe recently selected their latest album, Radio Salone, as one of the Top 10 World Music Releases of 2012. While CBC Radio in Canada chose Radio Salone as the Best World Music Album of 2012.

The Refugee All Stars are a great band with an inspiring back story. The band members met in a refugee camp in Guinea having been displaced by the civil war in Sierra Leone.
There they entertained and lifted the spirits of their fellow refugees. An award winning documentary was released in 2006 telling the band’s story, and since then both their music and inspiring story has won international recognition. Here is a clip from the documentary (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EA4z2sd3fOI).
So see you at the concert on 3 February for a great evening of entertainment which will raise money for a fantastic cause!
