A Summer Walk through Tahrir Square

A report from Tahrir Square!

Two weeks ago we aired our first program from our Hip Deep series on the music of Egypt. Here we bring you a report from Tahrir Square from the Summer of 2011.

Afropop producer Banning Eyre took a walk through the square to interview and talk to some of the people who were still occupying the space. Eyre met a series of people and musicians who told him about the music they played during the occupation of the square and what inspired them to stand up against the government.
