Egypt's Identity

Egypt's Identity

Suzy Klein travels to Cairo to meet musicians and cultural activists, and find out how Egypt is forging a new cultural identity. Recorded in a climate of upheaval and protest that climaxed with the deposing of President Mohammed Morsi this week, Suzy hears how Egyptian cultural identity not only spans 7,000 years of history, but includes Pharaonic, Arabic, Coptic and Western Classical music, and that musicians today are taking to the street to defend this plurality of cultural expression.
