The Sierra Leone Refugee All-Stars are easily one of the best and most unique bands that comes through Columbia on a regular basis. This was the fourth time I've seen them as they've been part of the Roots 'N Blues fest a few times and my boy Spencer Smith and I have gone to see them other times at the Note. IT WAS A BLAST THIS TIME ESPECIALLY! It seemed less reggae oriented and more tinged with calypso somehow. Opening for them was Toubab Krewe, a really great band from North Carolina that sound like they're from the other side of the globe. I originally saw them at Bonnaroo, and was amazed by their rhythm and crazy instruments with dozens of strings. Here are some pictures... IF anyone wants to exchange CDs, I have albums from both of these bands, so hit me up.
