Emel Mathlouthi's tracks are anthems to popular risings from the Jasmine Revolution in her home country Tunisia. While the future still looks uncertain, her music maintains its stridency. Emel released her album Kelmti Horra (My Word is Free) early in 2012. It quickly became the cornerstone of a musical genre that spread beyond Tunisia. Emel is Mediterranean and urban; fiery with a radiant voice. Kelmti Horra comprises 10 gems, principally in Arabic with occasional dips into French and English. With electro and trip-hop rhythms her music is inspried by key moments in her life and her surroundings. Emel Mathlouthi is a songwriter with the rare knack of turning torment and suffering into dreams.

"Emel Mathlouthi marries her songs of social protest to electronica: a rumble of drum and bass on incendiary declaratiions" David Honigmann, The Financial Times.

Born in Tunis, Emel Mathlouthi is a songwriter, composer, guitarist, and singer who is bringing an amazing brand new sound to Tunisian music. Endowed with an outstanding voice, she evokes Joan Baez, Sister Marie Keyrouz and the Lebanese diva Fairouz. Her captivating style is lyrical, and displays powerful rock, oriental and trip hop influences (she has formerly collaborated with Adrian Thaws aka Tricky).

    Bro, I want to buy a ticket now.. But am wondering if the tickets will be based on reserved seats or first in first serve.
