r.i.p., ahmed basiony

Who are the real voices and faces of revolution in today’s Middle East and North Africa?

We’re sharing some of them with you here because these are people using their art and music to change their world.

Ahmed Basiony was an art teaching assistant at Helwan University and he was killed on January 25th during the protests in Cairo. This is one of his final musical statements, recorded here with Abou Asala at last year’s  “100Live electronic Music Festival” in Egypt.
