Ramy Essam “Tahrir and Beyond” with special guest Ganzeer
And The Lazour Brothers, writers of "We Live in Cairo"
7:30pm doors • 8:30pm show
Acclaimed Egyptian singer, songwriter, and activist Ramy Essam and visual artist Ganzeer were two of the most influential artists of the Egyptian Revolution. Though they both live in exile today, the two continue the unfinished struggle for a free and open Egypt through their art. Together with Arab-American musician/playwrights The Lazours, they present Beyond Tahrir, a multimedia commemoration of the anniversary of Egypt’s spontaneous uprising for democracy in 2011. Join them for an evening of music, commentary, and visual art that highlights the creativity and beauty that the revolution unlocked for a generation of young Egyptians, and how the arts still shape their ongoing struggle today.
