Between January 25th and February 11th, Cairo’s Tahrir Square turned into a cross between Woodstock and a giant soapbox. Music and poetry played a crucial role in breaking the ice and melting the fear of tyrannical decades.
The Barbican Hall in London celebrates people power in the Arab world with an exceptional line-up of artists, all of whom helped to create the soundtrack to Egypt’s revolution.
