Emel Mathlouthi and Band

Location: UH Hilo Performing Arts Center

Emel Mathlouthi is a compelling songwriter, composer, guitarist, and singer who brings a powerful new sound to Tunisian music. Endowed with an outstanding voice, she evokes Joan Baez, Sister Marie Keyrouz and the Lebanese diva, Fairouz. Her captivating style is lyrical, with powerful rock, oriental and trip hop influences (she’s collaborated with Tricky).
Her song “Kelmti Horra”, (my word is free) was taken up by the Arab Spring revolutionaries and sung on the streets of Tunis. Emel possesses immense stage presence and a voice that spells revolution and freedom..
