A song from the Zagros mountains
Mountains write epic again, voices echo again in the mountains of Kurdistan. For nearly fifty years, the voice of each epic song has been rising from this vastness.
A heavy war is taking place in the mountains of Kurdistan today. These mountains, this land have hosted wars for centuries.
These mountains are the war ground of the people of Kurdistan. Countless heroic stories and epics were written on these mountains. The Kurdish people have never forgotten what happened. It resonated with dengbêjs and kilams, making their voices heard by everyone. All the children grew up with these kilam in their memories. Every sultan, every sovereign who came wanted to destroy this memory. They dug wells and covered them with concrete, but they cannot erase the memory.
New memories are added every day. The Kurdish people, whose ears are accustomed to dengbêj kilams, this time turned to the mountains to listen to the new kilams. Mountains write epic again, voices echo again in the mountains of Kurdistan. For nearly fifty years, the voice of each epic writer has been rising from this vastness.
A voice came from the Zagros these days. A voice that will never be forgotten. A voice from the tunnels of war, the pride of our history. This is the voice of the martyred commander, Bager Gever. The voice of Commander Bager from the mountains of Kurdistan, the Zagros, Martyr Şahin Tepesi in Zap, Martyr Berxwedan war tunnels. “I don't have a good voice, excuse me. The chemical gases used affect our throat.”
While fighting for the freedom of his people, this valiant son of the people of Kurdistan sings a song with his comrades, in the middle of the darkness, in the war tunnels with great morale, against the brutal methods of the Turkish army. With his warmest, most sincere voice...
His comrades listen to him with the same sincerity and great love. Just like the Kurdish people listening to the voice of this brave son...
