Feb. 29, 2012

Journalist Ashraf Khalil was based in Cairo when the protests first began in Tahrir Square a little more than a year ago. Worldview talks with him about his new book Liberation Square: Inside the Egyptian Revolution and the Rebirth of a Nation. Also, in honor of the Tenth Annual Chicago Flamenco Festival, Jerome and Global Notes contributor Catalina Maria Johnson take a listen to flamenco fusion, where the traditional Spanish sound has been mixed with rhythms from India and the Caribbean.
