NATACHA ATLAS : ODE TO EGYPT – RISE 2 FREEDOM!

EGYPT-POLITICS-UNREST

What is music……

without revolution…….

without freedom………..

without the will of the people winning through!

Good Luck Egypt!

Natacha Atlas

Such an amazing feeling to see fellow egyptians on the news celebrating and feeling a tremendous sense of achievement and relief, theres no way that anyone watching can fail to be moved by these events, and it shows once again that through unity , all things are possible.

I would dearly love to see all of the worlds impoverished people rise up against the corruption and the thieves posing as governments because more than three quarters of the world are suffering because of a relatively few elite blood sucking bastards are grabbing more than their fair share, all governments are criminal is what one albert camus said:

“so there is still more work to be done , however today is a great day and celebration is its order!”

18 days ago , we were watching the news completely stunned to see (live) what we never expected to see in our lifetimes we were thus inspired to remix some tunes from mounqaliba that we thought were relevant and poignant to the events as they unfolded.  We dedicated the video/song to the egyptian people and their strength before mubarak resigned and todays victory is hopefully the start of many more like it…..

Message from Natacha & Sami:

This is a remix of material from “Mounqaliba”. We were inspired to do this by the news from Tahrir Square.

Mounqaliba

Here’s a translation :  

<< Mubarak : “My fellow citizens..A fine line lies between freedom…and chaos.” >>

Natacha :

Let us stand together and awaken ,

Let us question, learn and study;

Listen, understand and think.

Let us understand,

Permit us to know-

Permit us to know freedom.

Let us know there is a land

where words are the purveyors of truth,

heads are held high,

And human will is regarded above all.

Where the world is not split into a thousand fragments,

Under siege, forgotten, or lost –

Let us perceive of it,

Let us know that place.

Let us know our land,

where words are the purveyors of truth.

<< Mubarak : “My fellow citizens..A fine line lies between freedom…and -” >>

<<Crowds: “MAY HOSNI MUBARAK FALL !!”>>

    You think the same number of people will ever demonstrate in Cairo against female genital mutilation? In a couple of years that little girl will have her clitoris and labia cut off, arranged by the mother on whose shoulders she’s sitting.

    I wish Egyptians all the best, but I lived there long enough to know that whover wins the next elections will do nothing to stamp this out. Easier to topple a dictator than tackle this barbaric practice.

    Anyhow, Mabruk ya Misr, congratulations etc. I hope the future’s more ‘asal than basal, and that insha’llah this little girl is one of the 5% who won’t get cut.

    Yes, mate a lot of wrong happens all over the world including in India, UK and other places. No nation/peoples’ are perfect. This is a very positive time for Egypt, why ruin that..? Let them have their moment to bask in this truly revolutionary and historic moment cause they’ve shown a lot of balls to achieve this, which is more than can be said for most people’s around the world hiding in their comfort zones.

    I agree this practice is deplorable and indeed anti-Islamic, it is a cultural practice which ought to be wiped out but inspite of all the wrongs that may exist there, now is not the time to look at those.

    Now is the time to celebrate all that is right about Egypt and to be postiive with what has been achieved there and maybe places like India, China & USA ought to learn from this.

    Viva La Revolution!
