Morning with Ramy Essam

Egyptian artist Ramy Essam's songs helped spark the Arab Spring and the rise of revolution.  They have also led to his arrest and torture.  Ramy's song, "Irhal", is referred to as "the anthem of the revolution."  He is exiled in Stockholm where he continues to write and publish.  Ramy was in the studio recently.  An obvious inspiration, he is touring North America this summer.
