The Soundtrack Of Change [2.3.11]

Egyptian musician Cherif El-Masri found himself singing songs at the protests in Egypt this week. They were songs that dated back a century, with lyrics that question and prod. Cherif tells the story of the moment he stood to sing before hundreds of thousands of his countrymen. Also on the show, an Estonian remembers the song that helped lift his country to freedom.
