“Hold your head up high, for you are an Egyptian.”

Yasmine El Rashidi's article, "Freedom," in the New York Review of Books, really captures the euphoric atmosphere at Tahrir Square at the moment of the end of Mubarak. And it ends with this:

As I write this, a youth pop group is giving a concert in Tahrir Square, singing: “its the beginning, the beginning of your life, the beginning of stability, the beginning of security, the beginning of your life, say yes yes, say yes yes.” The crowd is waving flags and singing back.

I hope I can find out more about this unidentified group, and come back to this in future. This serves as a place holder. (Someone please message me!)
