Sierra Leone’s Refugee All Stars – Libation (2014) #Libation #SierraLeoneRefugeeAllStar

Sierra Leone's Refugee All Stars - Libation (2014)

Brand new album from Sierra Leone’s Refugee All Stars coming out on Cumbancha. Quick reminder :  the band members met in a refugee camp in Guinea during the civil war in the 1990s, where playing music was their form of escape from the extreme misery of their situation.

“The album takes its title, Libation, from the ritual pouring of a liquid that is common in African cultures. A libation is poured as an offering to a god or spirit, to honor the ancestors, and in memory of loved ones who have died. Often, when a libation is poured it is an invocation for sacred spirits to be present at a special event such as the welcoming of people into the community, for a wedding, birth or funeral or the coronation of a king or other ruler.”
