7 May 2010: Norway Meets Sierra Leone

Sierra Leone’s Refugee All Stars are in town next week, so we ping-ponged music from them and their fellow Sierra Leoneians with music from Norway. Plus new releases, requests, and show previews in the 2nd hour of the show. If you’re in Western Washington, do yourself a favor and check out one of the best quiet little global culture festivals around: Giant Magnet runs May 11-17 in Seattle and Tacoma, featuring world music, dance, puppetry, and circus acts.
