Mehdi R2M



Musician Mehdi R2M comments on music censorship in Tunisia.

This interview with Mehdi R2M was recorded by Freemuse Officer Martin Buch Larsen in Cairo, Egypt, in June 2011.

Deriving from a family of music lovers, Mehdi R2M brings together the best of rap, RnB and Ragga. He is now an established name in Tunisia and on his first album, ‘Door to Door’ which recently hit the markets of Tunisia, he sheds light on a number of social, economic and political issues.

In this video he speaks of the challenges he faced as a musician before the revolution and explains how the taboos, harassment and intimidation that used to plague his native Tunisia are now slowly disappearing, albeit slowly.
