Freetown, SIERRA LEONE

Members of the group 'X-taci' and friends dance during a break in the recording of their music video. Music videos are becoming increasingly important as a meas of promotion, yet some of the most outspoken bands have suffered airplay bans imposed on their songs by government owned Sierra Leonean Broadcasting service (SLBS). A new musical genre combining rap, Hip-Hop rhythms and protest lyrics has emerged in Sierra Leone following the brutal ten year long civil war. The music is widely regarded as conveying the 'voice of the people' and representing the conditions of the country's younger generation during its post conflict period.
