Ramy Essam

Ramy Essam is an Egyptian rock musician, best known for his Tahrir Square musical protests during the Egyptian Revolution of 2011. His song “Irhal” (“Leave” in English) garnered worldwide attention as the lyrics served as a plea demanding the resignation of Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak. Time Out referred to the anthem as the third-most-world-changing song of all time. Often referred to as the "singer of the Egyptian revolution," Essam's songs faced backlash and were banned in Egypt, prompting the singer to leave his home country. Essam's influential music has gotten over 6 million views.
