Sierra Leone’s Refugee All-Stars will perform at the Maui Arts & Cultural Center’s Castle Theater on Thursday, April 30, at 7:30 p.m.

The singers and musicians of Sierra Leone’s Refugee All-Stars have risen like a phoenix out of the ashes of war, to rekindle the passions of fans across the globe with uplifting songs of hope, faith and joy.

The group is an example of the redeeming power of music, and the ability of the human spirit to persevere through hardship and emerge with optimism intact.

From humble beginnings in West African refugee camps, the All-Stars have become one of Africa’s top acts.

“For a band born amid war and flight, [they] sure make happy music. They’re a blend of old school, West African party grooves, roots reggae, gospel and marching band brass … guaranteed to put a smile on your face.”–Banning Eyre, NPR
