Sierra Leone’s Refugee All Stars begin Radio Salone with a short dub interlude, before diving into the afrobeat rhythms of “Gbara Case.” Throughout this finely-crafted album the band moves between genres effortlessly, letting the global influences on modern African music shine through. Surely producer Ticklah deserves some of the credit for assembling such an eclectic and impressive collection of tunes: freebie “Mother In Law” opens with powerful funky horns, “Reggae Sounds The Message” and “Work It Brighter” sound straight out of Jamaica, “Kali” is playful and upbeat, and “Man Muyu” straddles the gap between the afrobeat and psych-funk traditions. Great stuff throughout, brought to you by the Cumbancha record label:
