Revolutionary Music

June 13, 2012

One of the offshoots of the Arab Spring has been the revitalization of grassroots music scenes in Arab capitals from Tunis to Jeddah. Here is an edited selection of revolutionary music from all over the Arab world.


Omar Offendum- #Syria


Cairokee- Ya Maidan


Emal Methloui- Kelmti Horra

Of course, revolutionary music is nothing new and hip-hop/spoken word have been inspiring activists for generations. Here are some of my favorites:

Immortal Technique- Resist Mind Control

Lowkey-My Soul

Ani Difranco- Swan Dive
