In 1985, Libyan dictator Moammar Gaddafi outlawed music instruments, and ordered them hurled into bonfires. Those were the years the music died…Yet in 2011, when the people rise, the music reawakens, and the streets of Benghazi resound with a melodic fury. Libyan youth come in droves to rock the very foundations of the regime with crunching guitars and furious beats. But when the tyrant falls, victory soon descends into chaos, and a new tyranny emerges. The streets of Benghazi once again go silent. Yet the flame of hope cannot be dimmed, as the musicians once again prepare to challenge oppression … and strike a chord for freedom.
