North African Revolution Hiphop
Our thanks to Andy Kissaragi of Untimely Sound for bringing this to our attention:
Khalas Mixtape Vol 1 is a compilation of songs created by North African hip hop artists from Egypt, Libya, Tunisia and Algeria, who have emerged as voices of recent uprisings and calls for protest. Mish Ba3eed, or ‘not far’, refers to the sense of solidarity that these youth feel across borders, the similarities of their causes and the oppressors they face, their physical proximity and the sense that our ultimate goal is within sight. Each song describes the unique circumstances of each artist’s country, carrying with it the subtleties of local dialects, but also highlights the extraordinary similarities of their struggles.
