As I’m sure you know, it’s been going down in Egypt for the past couple of weeks. On #Jan25th (named for the date the protests began), MC’s Freeway, The Narcicyst and Omar Offendum, as well as Def Poet Amir Sulaiman and singer Ayah, offer their own thoughts and reflections on a situation that is touching people of many different faiths and nationalities on many different levels.
Inspired by the resilience of Egyptian people during their recent uprising, several notable musicians from North America have teamed up to release a song of solidarity and empowerment. The track is fittingly titled “#Jan25″ as a reference to both the date the protests officially began in Egypt, and its prominence as a trending topic on Twitter. Produced by Sami Matar, a Palestinian-American composer from Southern California, and featuring the likes of Freeway, The Narcicyst, Omar Offendum, HBO Def Poet Amir Sulaiman, and Canadian R&B vocalist Ayah – this track serves as a testament to the revolution’s effect on the hearts and minds of today’s youth, and the spirit of resistance it has come to symbolize for oppressed people worldwide.
