Sierra Leone's Refugee All Stars

After playing the Festival of Nations last year in St. Paul, Sierra Leone’s Refugee All Stars will bring their reggae-spiked Afro groove back to the friendly confines of Minneapolis’ West Bank. Celebrating their 10th anniversary, the All Stars reconnected with Chris Velan, producer of their debut, for the release this month of their fourth album, “Libation.” Recorded in a farmhouse in Vermont, it’s a return to the acoustic sound of their 2006 debut, which was literally recorded around a campfire in a refugee camp in Guinea. Drawing on the traditional sounds of highlife, maringa and palm wine styles for “Libation,” the All Stars, who occasionally sing in English, have a joyous spirit that is infectious. Jon Bream
