CAIRO: Amir Eid Music Video from Tahrir Square


Egyptian singer Amir Eid offers the demonstrators “Sout Al Horeya” as his tribute to and expression of solidarity with those in Tahrir Square. The refrain: “I’m Not Turning Around” 

WIRED reports the following translation of an excerpt:

 “We’re dreaming our dreams and tomorrow is coming and it’s ahead of us,” he sings with the crowd, “in every street in my country, freedom, we lift our heads to the sky, and the most important thing is our rights.”  

As our Safa Samiezade’-Yazd has reported, music and art are well integrated into this revolution.

The people's expressions and the music speak so eloquently of a righteous cause by noble people.

We can all learn a lesson from the unity, dignity and love with which the Egyption people literally changed the world in such a short period of time.

‎"Rebellion is a very silent phenomenon that will go on spreading without making any noise and without even leaving any footprints behind. It will move from heart to heart in deep silences, and the day it has reached to millions of people without any bloodshed, just the understanding of those millions of people will change our old primitive animalistic way." Osho

This is a wonderful song! I could not help but be moved by the music and lyrics; the circumstances surrounding this particular video make the song even more poignant. I cannot wait until CairoKee releases a first album. It is bound to be marvelous.

As for Mubarak finally stepping down and running: I am so thrilled for the Egyptian people. I sincerely pray for the best possible future for the country and for the citizens.
