Anis Dridi



Musician Anis Dridi comments on music censorship in Tunisia.

This interview with Anis Dridi was recorded by Freemuse Officer Martin Buch Larsen in Cairo, Egypt, in June 2011.

Originally trained as a religious singer, Anis Dridi has since moved on to more unconventional genres such as Arab-African fusion, rap and hip hop.

He frequently records and performs with Tunisian rappers and underground musicians like Balti, Dali Ben Jemaa and Mehdi R2M and has been part of the underground music movement that ignited Tunisia’s revolution in December 2010.

In this video clip he speaks of the Tunisian music scene, censorship and genres before and after the ‘Jasmine Revolution’.
