Kelmti Horra: Watch the stunning performance of freedom song at Nobel Peace Prize Concert

Emel Mathlouthi performs her song “Kelmti Horra” at the 2015 Nobel Peace Prize Concert. Emel is a firebrand Tunisian singer, songwriter and composer. She gained attention when her song Kelmti Horra (My Word is Free) was adopted by the Arab Spring revolutionaries and soon became an anthem throughout the region, in particular among young people yearning for change.
Remember: The Nobel Peace Prize 2015 was awarded to the "National Dialogue Quartet" for its decisive contribution to the building of a pluralistic democracy in TUNISIA in the wake of the "Jasmine Revolution of 2011".

Emel Mathluthi – My Word is Free

I am those who are free and never fear
I am the secrets that will never die
I am the voice of those who would not give in
I am the meaning amid the chaos

I am the right of the oppressed
That is sold by these dogs (people who are dogs)
Who rob the people of their daily bread
And slam the door in the face of ideas

I am those who are free and never fear
I am the secrets that will never die
I am the voice those who would not give in
I am free and my word is free
I am free and my word is free
Don't forget the price of bread
And don't forget the cause of our misery
And don't forget who betrayed us in our time of need

I am those who are free and never fear
I am the secrets that will never die
I am the voice those who would not give in
I am the secret of the red rose
Whose color the years loved
Whose scent the rivers buried
And who sprouted as fire
Calling those who are free

I am a star shining in the darkness
I am a thorn in the throat of the oppressor
I am a wind touched by fire
I am the soul of those who are not forgotten
I am the voice of those who have not died

Let's make clay out of steel
And build with it a new love
That becomes birds
That becomes a country/home
That becomes wind and rain

I am all the free people of the world put together
I am like a bullet
I am all the free people of the world put together
I am like a bullet
