Thanks to Brian S. McQueen for the video. A student at St. Michael's College in Colchester, VT, Brian produced this video after filming some of the recording sessions for "Libation" as part of a school project.

Africa's most inspirational band celebrates ten years since their first studio recording with its finest album to date. Libation's "around-the-campfire" intimacy, honest soulfulness, and technical prowess reveal how far the group has come while remaining true to its roots.

Produced by Chris Velan and mixed by Iestyn Polson, known for his work with David Gray, Patti Smith, and David Bowie, Libation embodies the contagious joy, optimism in the face of struggle and love for their fellow man that has earned the All Stars a devoted following across the globe.

"Maria"
(Words & Music by Reuben M. Koroma)

(Chorus)
Maria ya, Maria ya, Maria, ie
Maria ya, Maria ya maria, oh Marie
Maria, Maria yay
Maria, Maria, Maria
Maria, Maria yay, yay yay Marie

That's not what we discussed
(That's not what we talked)
That's not what we arranged
(That's not what we talked)
That's not what we agreed on
(That's not what we talked)
That's not what we bargained
(That's not what we talked)

You promised to marry me
For better and for worse
You promised to be with me
For the rest of our lives
You promised to love me
Forever and forever
You promised to stay with me
Forever and forever

(Repeat Chorus)

When I ran out of money
You started stressing my life
When I ran out of money
You kept defaming my name around
To my surprise, you packed your belongings
And moved to your mother
To my surprise you packed your belongings
And moved to your father
