Ramy Essam & Safoura Safavi

Ramy Essam and Safoura Safavi

With his guitar at Tahir Square in Cairo, Ramy Essam is credited with providing the “anthem of the revolution” during the Arabic Spring.

Although Safoura Safavi is loved in Iran, her country of birth, she cannot go back to sing her soul-filled songs due to their critical nature.

They may both still be largely unknown in their new land, but they are among the Best of Sweden.

Watch them perform together at GRID 15!
