The most natural power derives from the four elements: earth, water, air, and fire. This quartet of forces fuses art to life. As such, Emel Mathlouthi aligns nature and music on her third full-length album, "Everywhere We Looked Was Burning". Striking a balance between eloquent songcraft, sparse instrumentation, and the voices of the woods, wind, sea, and flames, the Tunisia-born and New York-based singer heralds revolution by trumpeting creative experimentation.

“I had a clear vision for this,” she exclaims. “I wanted an army of furious nature sounds. There’s a menacing apocalypse on the horizon, nature is taking vengeance on the ones who destroyed it. It’s the goddess Kali that comes to burn everything to the ground. Deconstruction is a major theme, yet there’s hope, rebuilding, and resurrection. I went deep inside myself to find true spirituality after getting lost in the atrocities we see all over the world and the superficiality we see on our social media feeds.”

As the story goes, she offset an oppressive upbringing in the North African country of Tunisia by turning to music. She went from performing in a high school heavy metal band to composing protest songs that spurned a fervent social media following for her artful amalgam of heartfelt melodies and off-kilter electronic production.

Among those, “Kelmti Horra (My Word is Free)” generated millions of views throughout the 2011 Tunisian Revolution. Not to mention, the song served as the anthem for the Arab Spring, gave its name to her debut album Kelmti Horra, and took her to the 2015 Nobel Peace Prize Concert where she performed it to thunderous applause.
