Freetown Uncut is a Youtube channel that I stumbled across while being nosey on Facebook. The about section of the page isn't very robust, but from what I can tell the channel features local Sierra Leonean artists participating in recording sessions and doing covers of popular songs. I fell in love with this cover of Sam Smith's "I'm not the only one," by Daniel Bangura. Daniel's soulful tone and West African accent superimposed on this British tune reminded me of music's powerful ability to communicate emotions across cultures and continents in a matter of minutes.
