The Rough Guide to Arabic Revolution


During the Arab Spring, as protestors flooded the streets in protest against the ruling elite, it was music that galvanised their spirit and communicated their message out loud. Powerful chants, soaring traditional melodies and articulate hip-hop radiated throughout the revolutions. This Rough Guide charts the best underground tunes by El Tanbura, Sami Yusuf and Freemuse award winner Ramy Essam.

Bonus CD: Ramy Essam - 'El Masalah'

Protest singer, and Freemuse Award Winner, Ramy Essam was on the ground at Tahrir Square throughout the Egyptian Revolution. He roused the crowds with his stirring songs which were viral hits as well. After Mubarak's exit, Ramy returned to Tahrir Square only to be arrested and subject to torture for four hours by the army. Since the events of 2011 he has continued to campaign for democracy via his impassioned songs.
