Sierra Leone's Refugee All Stars, Mamoudou Balde 

When: Wed., April 13, 9 p.m. 2016
Price: $15-$18
Sierra Leone’s Refugee All-Stars includes refugees displaced to Guinea during Sierra Leone’s civil war. The group metes out tunes in a mélange of West African styles—baskeda, palm-wine, gumbe, highlife, soukous—and turn tragedy into uplifting near-spirituals. When the styles blend, the All-Stars make a passable cousin to Fela Kuti’s scorching Afrobeat ensembles; at worst, it can be a bit like watered-down reggae. —Patrick Wall
