Emel Mathlouthi, Tunisian Singer in San Francisco Past

Friday, Oct 16, 2015 ,
8:00 PM - 10:00 PM
- San Francisco, CA, United States

Emel Mathlouthi, who the New York Times called a "gentle firebrand", is the Tunisian singer whose song, "Kelmti Horra" ("My Word Is Free"), became an anthem of the Arab Spring. Influenced by 1960s folk and socially conscious Arabic-speaking songwriters like Sheikh Imam from Egypt and Marcel Khalife from Lebanon, she is more revolutionary than romantic. Well-versed in Western rock and dance music, Mathlouthi uses musical elements from the Middle East and other Mediterranean regions in a wide array of styles. “My music is a mirror for all these influences”, she says.
