Music video out now! Ramy Essam: Lagl Tentesri (For You To Win)

Lagl Tentesri (For You To Win) highlights the resilience and sacrifices of the people in the Egyptian revolution – whether they be martyrs, prisoners, or still carrying on the fight and facing heavy consequences for their actions.

The lyricist, Ahmed Douma, prominent Egyptian activist and revolutionary, is serving a 15 years sentence in Egyptian prisons, and has already spent 11 years of his life imprisoned for standing up for human rights, democracy, and freedom nod speech during the early years of the Egyptian revolution.

Still, even though facing unjust and brutal treatment in his confinement, Douma resiliently keeps fighting for his cause with his words.

Lagl Tentesri (For You To Win) is a tribute to human rights defenders in Egypt and worldwide – especially for Douma himself.
