Sierra Leone's Refugee All Stars band members

4 of 6
Sierra Leone's Refugee All Stars band started with singer Reuben (above on drums) and guitarist Franco, but soon grew to include four more musicians—Reuben's wife Grace, Black Nature, Arahim and Mohamed. They all lived in or around Sierra Leone's capital, Freetown, before fleeing in the 1990s. After suffering their own tragedies, they found each other in a refugee camp in the Republic of Guinea.

This self-made family is using music to heal from the horrors they have survived.
