During the early stages of the Arab Spring, a group of female singers and musicians from Tunisia (Nawel Ben Kraiem, Badiaa Bouhrizi, Medusa, Houwaida), Libya (Nada) and Egypt (Donia Massoud, Maryam Saleh, Youssra El Hawary) met in Mohsen Matri Studio in Tunis to sing- against corruption. The result is this CD which was completed with Syrian artist Rasha Rizk from her political asylum in Cairo.
