Event Details

Ramy Essam – an Egyptian musician best known for his appearances in Tahrir Square in Cairo during the Egyptian Revolution of 2011. With his songs Ramy exploded into international fame as the real voice of the Egyptian revolution.. His song Irhal, in which then Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak was urged to resign, gained great popularity among the demonstrators. It became internationally known through YouTube ,and is referred to as the anthem of the revolution. In 2011, it was selected by Time Out as the third-most world-changing song of all time. Fame came at a heavy price with torture, arrests and censorship to silence Ramy. His songs were banned and he was unable to perform public shows.  With a warrant currently out for his arrest in Egypt, Ramy has been living in Finland and Sweden and has begun to tour now as an ambassador of the Egyptian Revolution. 

CHIRP is a series of free Tuesday and Thursday night summer concerts in Ballard Park located in the heart of Ridgefield. It also sponsors the U.S. Military Band concerts held several times a year at the H.S. auditorium.  CHIRP is totally funded by individual and foundation donations as well as contributions from local businesses. It is co-sponsored by the town of Ridgefield through its Parks & Recreation Department and The Ridgefield Press.
