Sout Al Horeya

This has been a rough week for anyone covering the Middle East in light of the deaths of beloved colleagues and hundreds more innocent civilians in Syria. As an unapologetic sucker for inspirational music videos, though, I found this one that my Arabic teacher showed in class today a useful pick-me-up. Filmed a  year ago in Tahrir, it’s called “Sout Al Horeya” (Sound of Freedom). At the very least, it’s a reminder of the idealism that drove the early days of the Arab Spring, and that, for all the setbacks since, continues to inspire millions upon millions throughout the region. Enjoy.
