Afterglow: Tree Thump

Friday, March 4, 2011, at about 10pm | Stage 5

Dreamy, psychedelic melodies meet blistering electric fiddle riffs and funky improvised beats in the didj explorations of Tree Thump. Phil Clark cranks it up with the didjeridu, Ben Smith on fiddle grounds the sound in traditional music with electronic experimentation, JB Faires mixes it up on bass, Ben Hay lends a Zimbabwe-pop-and-zydeco infusion to his drum licks, and percussionist Jason Finkelman brings congas, caxixi, bells, and whistles to a night that can only be called—as the band puts it—“an experience.”

Sierra Leone Refugee All-Stars

Event Information
Event Date: 
April 17, 2011 - 12:30am
Venue: 
Doudna Fine Arts Center, Dvorak Concert Hall
Address: 
one block west of Ninth Street at Garfield Avenue on the EIU campus in Charleston, Ill
Description: 

Sierra Leone Refugee All-StarsThroughout the 1990s, the West African country of Sierra Leone was wracked with a bloody, horrifying war that forced millions – including the musicians that would eventually form Sierra Leone’s Refugee All Stars – to flee their homes. Sitting in a dusty refugee camp in Guinea in 2004, Reuben M. Koroma, the founder of Sierra Leone’s Refugee All Stars, could not have imagined what the near future would hold.

In just six whirlwind years, the group has gone from being unknown musicians to being the subject of an acclaimed documentary film, touring the world, appearing on The Oprah Winfrey Show, and sharing the stage and studio with Aerosmith and other international stars. Sierra Leone’s Refugee All Stars have risen like a phoenix out of the ashes of war and enflamed the passions of fans across the globe with their uplifting songs of hope, faith and joy.

The Sierra Leone Refugee All-Stars appear with generous support from EIU African American Studies and the University Board.

Admission: 
$15 General, $12 EIU Employees & Seniors (62+), $7 Students
