Freetown, SIERRA LEONE

Singer Funky Freddy of the group 'Jungle Leaders' records vocals at the microphone in the town's established Island Studios. The lyrics of the track criticise the political corruption which many Sierra Leoneans feel is preventing the country from progressing from its under-developed status. The song has been banned from airplay on the government owned Sierra Leonean Broadcasting service (SLBS). The 'Jungle Leaders' contribute to a new musical genre combining rap, Hip-Hop rhythms and protest lyrics which 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.
