Singing to Express Hopes, Political, Social and Cultural Issues
The Choir Project is an open workshop that operates under the name Cairo Choir Complaints to strengthen freedom of speech through art and singing. During a one-week workshop, young men and women come together. They discuss their complaints regarding their lives, then they transform those complaints into lyrics. They compose and sing their poems in live shows, although many of them are not skilled musicians or songwriters. The purpose of these shows is to give an equal space to all people to express their opinions.
