Tunisian of the Month

 A debut album "Kelmti Horra" (My word is free), released in 2012, and several concerts around the world, established Tunisian singer-songwriter Emel Mathlouthi as a bona fide spokesperson for the youth of Tunisia.

Five years later, this real artist of her time, followed that viral protest song up by a new album "Ensen" (Human) which was recorded in seven different countries, straddling two continents.  

Having taken up residence in New York since 2014, the "Voice of the Revolution", as Emel is dubbed, is a most suitable Tunisian Music's ambassadress to the United States (and beyond). .

Her next rendez-vous with the Tunisian public will take place at the Carthage Festival on August 12th. 

Emel recently made time for this interview  with the The Community Gazette.
