Egyptian artist and human rights activist Ramy Essam played an active role in the 2011 Egyptian revolution, including concerts in Tahrir Square. He was later imprisoned and tortured, and his music was banned in his home country - in fact, you can be arrested if the police find his music on your phone. In 2014, he managed to escape to Sweden and has since continued to use his music to fight for human rights.
