In this Sunday, June 2, 2013 photo, "Mahraganat," Arabic for "festivals," singer, Fifty, rides a three-wheeled taxi, or 'toktok,' as he makes his way to perform at a wedding in Madinet el-Salam on the outskirts of Cairo, Egypt. A new musical sound emerged from the underground in Egypt since the country's 2011 revolution, a rapid-fire electronic beat, mixed with hypnotic rhythms drawn from religious festivals and fired up with auto-tuned vocals. Besides getting club crowds dancing all night long, it has given a rebellious voice to long marginalized youth, telling stories of everyday life in beaten-down neighborhoods of Cairo.
