At film festivals and Fambul Tok community screenings the question we are asked over and over is, “How can I help?” Well, now there’s a direct way to support the people of Sierra Leone and their groundbreaking, grassroots peacebuilding program, Fambul Tok. And best of all, you can groove while you’re at it!
We are thrilled to announce the release of our brand-new benefit album, Wan Fambul/One Family, available exclusively via our website. The only way to get this high energy and inspiring mix is by donating to Fambul Tok – and the minimum donation is just $10. All proceeds (as in 100% of your donation!) from this album go directly to the Fambul Tok program on the ground, supporting the ordinary people of Sierra Leone and their extraordinary practice of reconciliation.
The gifted musicians on this album share more than talent – they have all seen conflict and now sow peace. With the help of our friends at Modiba Productions, they have added their voices to a high-energy, urgent call for forgiveness and deep dialogue — a call to live as One Family. They exemplify the creative spirit that can accomplish the seemingly impossible. From edgy DJs to soulful singer-songwriters, from hard-hitting reggae outfits to transnational pop explorers, they believe in the power of ordinary people – entire communities ravaged by war – to work together to forge a lasting peace.
Visit FambulTok.comWanFambul to preview tracks from these amazing musicians: Bajah + The Dry Eye Crew, Abjeez, the Idan Raichel Project and Vieux Farka Toure, Vusi Mahlasela, Bhi Bhiman, Mashrou Leila, Bombino, Sierra Leone’s Refugee All Stars, Dengue Fever, Saba Saba, and Noble Society.
