Bermal Çem releases new song to mark 11th anniversary of the 19 July Revolution

On the occasion of the 11th anniversary of the 19 July Revolution, Bermal Çem released a video titled Henasa Şoreşê, dedicated to all Rojava Revolution martyrs.

Artist Bermal Çem released a clip called Henasa Şoreşê (Breath of the Revolution) to mark the 11th anniversary of the 19 July Revolution. Emphasizing that all the feelings, melodies and works are based on this revolution created by the martyrs, Bermal Çem said that this is why she dedicated this song to all the Rojava Revolution martyrs.

'We are knitting art, war and resistance together'

The artist explained this about the inspiration behind the song: "The Rojava Revolution resonated all over the world as an example. Because it was a revolution in which children, young women, mothers and fathers took part in war fronts together and had many martyrs. It was a self-sacrificing revolution against fascist forces such as ISIS and the Turkish state. The People's Defense Forces (HPG), People's Defense Units (YPG) and Women's Defense Units (YPJ) and our people took part in this war, making the revolution successful. I also wanted to translate the feelings of these fighters into music and share these values. I dedicate this song to all Rojava martyrs, and all revolution martyrs. Today, all our feelings, all our melodies and the works we make are based on these values, this revolution. Undoubtedly, it is our martyrs who convey the feelings of revolution to history and the future, and who convey this revolution to the whole world. This revolution still continues. That's why art, war and life continue to be intertwined. We knit them together."

The lyrics were written by Medya Doz, the music was composed by Bermal Çem and the arrangement was by Hadi Morardi.
