The awesome activist collective Mideast Youth has a great app called Mideast Tunes. According to MY founder Esra’a El Shafei:
It’sÂ the largest platform for underground musicians in the Middle East, with over 1,000 bands signed up. It’s also completely free… and comes with iOS/Android apps.Â Many of these musicians use music as a tool to promote social justice and have risked their lives to be heard.
To date, the project has been completely self-funded and to help with expansion and to cover core costs,MY has put together a crowdfunding campaign. Â They hope to raise $15,000 in the next month. If you can contribute, please do. Â I have already:
