This week on Tony Hillier’s World of Music we tune in to the sounds of the Arab world – with music from three of its most potent voices.The protest songs of Tunisian born Emel Mathlouthi became the anthems of the Arab spring in her homeland and in Egypt. Aziza Bhahim is an actor and singer from the Sahrawi people of western Sahara, a region split between several north African nations. And Rachid Taha is an Algerian singer who has earned international repute for his blend of rock and rai – his homelaned’s powerful folk music.

All three live and work outside their homelands – Emel and Aziza are effectively political exiles – but their music is knwon across the Arab world and beyond.
