VOICE OVER SCRIPT:

ANOTHER REVOLUTION IS TAKING PLACE IN EGYPT, ON THE STREETS AND IN THE HOMES.

(nats)

THE NEW MUSIC KNOWN AS MAH-RA-GANAT OR FESTIVAL MUSIC IS FILLED WITH LYRICS ABOUT BEING UNEMPLOYED, LOVE, PARTYING, AND POLITICS.

ONCE JUST HEARD IN URBAN SLUMS, THE STYLE FIRST EMERGED JUST BEFORE THE FALL OF PRESIDENT HOSNI MUBARAK IN 2011. NOW MAH-RA-GANAT CAN BE HEARD ALL OVER EGYPT AT WEDDINGS AND ACROSS SOCIAL LINES.

SOUNDBITE (Arabic) Islam Sobhy, Singer:

"We have developed a domain of local songs to be able to reach everyone - the upper, middle and lower classes. We are able to reach everyone because we are presenting something new that everyone can relate to.

THE POP CULTURE REVOLUTION ISN'T JUST CHANGING THE MUSIC SCENE IN EGYPT. IT'S BRINGING POPULAR ART FROM GALLERIES TO THE STREETS AS GRAFFITI. IMAGES OF BROKEN PHAROES AND DISILLUSIONED YOUTH EXPRESS THE MOOD OF THE COUNTRY.

SOUNDBITE (Arabic) Mahmoud Khaled, Cairo Resident:

"Graffiti sends a beautiful message. A message that we used as a tool to remove a regime. In the past we used to be afraid to talk or draw on the walls because of what the state police could do to us, but now we have some kind of freedom and we use graffiti to portray our messages."

THE POLITICAL AND ECONOMIC INSTABILITY IN EGYPT ENERGIZING YOUNG EGYPTIANS IN NEW WAYS.
