Hunergeha Welat, a Qamishli (Qamişlo) based Kurdish music community in North and East Syria, released a new song with a video clip on Monday.
The band dedicated the song, entitled Li herî jorê (“At the top”), to the Kurdish fighters who were killed in Turkey’s cross-border military offensives into northern Iraq.
The music video opens with a statement regarding the dedication.
“Dêrsim, Zap, Zagros and all the mountains of Kurdistan have always been symbols of resistance. No power has ever succeeded in taking these areas from the Kurds. Thousands of martyrs have shed their blood so that Kurdistan has always been an example of resistance in the world. For the souls of all the martyrs, especially for Esmer, Botan and Memyan.”
The music video was well received by the audience, with more than 100,000 views on YouTube in the first 24 hours after release.
Sung by Şervan Badini, the music of the Li herî jorê was created by Mehmud Berazî and the lyrics were written by Îbrahîm Feqê and Şêro Hindê. The dance in the clip, which attracted the attention of the viewers, was choreographed by Rojda Dendera.
The group, founded in 2019, has become very popular among Kurds with the songs and music videos it has released previously, with over 65 million views on Youtube.
