Join acclaimed Egyptian singer/songwriter/activist Ramy Essam with special guests The Lazours and Ganzeer at National Sawdust in Brooklyn, NY, on 1/25/20, for Beyond Tahir -- a multimedia commemoration of the anniversary of Egypt's spontaneous uprising for democracy in 2011.
Ramy Essam and visual artist Ganzeer were two of the most influential artists of the Egyptian Revolution, who left a lasting impression that still resonates. Though they both live in exile today, the two continue the unfinished struggle for a free and open Egypt through their art. Together with playwrights/ musicians The Lazours, they will present 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.
In Addition to the January 25th event at National Sawdust, Ramy Essam will play additional East Coast tour dates with his band in January. Full tour dates below:
