Considered one of the loudest voices of the Egyptian revolution, Ramy Essam has become an international symbol of social activism and a beacon of uncommon bravery in the Middle East. In 2011, his internationally known song “Irhal” not only became known as the song of the Egyptian revolution, but was selected by Time Out as the third most world-changing song of all time.

Originally scheduled to perform during BRAVE 2018, Ramy Essam was denied travel documents from this birth country. Now it is time to give him a second chance to premiere at BRAVE 2019.

“Ramy is like a Rock Bob Dylan of the Middle East.” Tom Morello, Rage Against the Machine, Audioslave.
