Watch Emel Mathlouthi perform “Kelmti Horra” at the 2015 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.
The Nobel Peace Prize Concert is a musical tribute held annually on 11 December every year since 1994 to honor the year’s Nobel Peace Prize Laureate.
Performers from around the world are proud to join in celebration of this important event, which features music ranging from pop and rock to jazz, classical, blues and country. The special mix of celebrity, celebration and ceremony makes this event a magical night to remember.
This year, one of the recipients is the Tunisian National Dialogue Quartet, a democracy group, which, according to the Norwegian Nobel Committee, made a “decisive contribution to the building of a pluralistic democracy”.
