Global Notes: The Refugee Crisis In Music
The ongoing refugee crisis in Europe is getting a soundtrack, so to speak.
A new project has paired British musicians with people who’ve been forced to leave their home and seek safety in the UK. The result is a five-song EP that features Robert Plant, West Saharan blues group Tinariwen and The Sierra Leone Refugee All Stars.
This Week on Global Notes we welcome that band’s founder Reuben Koroma to talk about the project.
