Khalas mixtape cover art

As of this writing (Sunday, Feb. 20th around 11:45pm ET) more than 230 protesters have been killed over the last few days on the streets of the Libyan cities Benghazi and al-Baida, many at the hands of the Libyan Army which has even opened fire on crowds of funeral attendees.

Violence has also touched protests in Zenten, and the country’s largest city of Tripoli. No one really knows how many have died or how many have been arrested because the entire nation is operating under a news blackout and the internet has been shut down.

This week’s World of Music is dedicated to the voices of revolution: from Cuba and Curaçao to New Orleans, North Africa, and beyond. The centerpiece of the show is a shockingly powerful recording of Arabic rap and hip-hop songs ripped directly from today’s international headlines. I downloaded the mix early last week from the Libyan exile site “enoughgaddafi.com”. Two days later the website was taken offline.

We’re going to track through the entire 12 songs of the mixtape, with contributions from Lotfi Double Kanon and Ibn Thabit (Libya), Ramy Donjevan (Egypt), Tunisian rapper El Génèral, and many more. This isn’t music you’ll be able to download yourself now, or hear almost anywhere else on American radio.

Don’t miss it – incredible times call for incredible music, and this is it. This is now.

World of Music is a voice for change every Monday from 3-5pm ET on the Radiator.  Online, or at 105.9FM if you’re listening in Burlington, VT.
