UC Irvine Professor Remixing the Song of the Egyptian Revolution
LeVine updated people yesteday on the status of the collaboration, writing, "Right now, we´re mixing the final version, as I found Ramy at Tahrir, as he´s been living there, and we went in the studio to finish the song. From Cairo to LA and back to Cairo in four days. Debuting tonight at the stage underneath `The People Demand the Removal of the Regime´ sign in the middle of Tahrir. Enjoy." The professor, thinking as many had that Mubarak was going to resign yesterday before the president delivered a speech to the contrary, wrote less than 24 hours ago, "Mubarak is provoking a blood bath, but if people can stay disciplined and nonviolent, they could sweep the regime away over the next few days. if not, who knows . . ."
"Over the next few days" turned out to be the next few hours. On a such a historic occasion, enjoy this rough mix, as the final version is still under works--just like the future of Egypt!
