Help Kashmir with Covid-19 Relief

Kashmir is struggling in its fight against the Coronavirus pandemic due to its poor healthcare infrastructure. The resources aren't enough to combat the rise in cases and the system in place is overwhelmed. Kashmir has just 59 beds per 100K population. The only two tertiary care hospitals in Kashmir are located in the capital city of Srinagar.
Kashmir-based non-profit Athrout Kashmir is on the ground and responding to the crisis. It is acquiring concentrators, therapeutics and oxygen cylinders while continuing its mission to get food and basic supplies to those in need.

Ahmer drops ‘Elaan’ Music Video: A Kashmiri-Punjabi Hip Hop Alliance with Prabh Deep – Sez on the Beat - Azadi Records

Jul 9, 2019

Kashmiri Hip Hop artist Ahmer presents the music video for “Elaan,” the fourth track and first single from his debut “Little Kid, Big Dreams” album, in collaboration with Prabh Deep and producer Sez on the Beat.

Kashmiri Hip Hop artist Ahmer presents the music video for Elaan, the fourth track and first single from his debut “Little Kid, Big Dreams” album, in collaboration with Prabh Deep and producer Sez on the Beat.

 About the Video:

Charged with loaded imagery of a jail or a detention center, the video for Elaan complements the bars that constitute the verses by Ahmer and senior associate Prabh Deep, both artists represented by Delhi-based Azadi Records. The aesthetic of the video falls in line with a larger history of hip hop music videos that offer social and political critique and commentary worldwide. In that manner, the song along with the video form part of a larger catalogue that maintains and revitalizes the tradition of resistance, interrogation and critique; all pillars of hip hop as a contemporary art form.

The artist states the following about the song versed in five different languages (Urdu, Hindi, English, Punjabi, Kashmiri):

This song is about everything I have seen around me while growing up. The song calls out people who are hypocritical because they do terrible things behind the curtain, but judge others for doing the same just to be accepted by society. It is about how people in power use religion to manipulate the masses. Prabh Deep’s verse is about how he is against people who are dividing the country on the basis of religion, caste and other socio-political factors.

Lyrics:

Ahmer:

Ye hai pachanave ki baat
Main paida hua leke paap
Woh kehte zindagi hai raaz
Toh puchna sawal hai haraam
Yahan duaon mein bhi dhaag
Shaitan pade qalamein, namaz
Vichaar inke paani aur jhaag
Satyanaash karke sab ka vikaas
Viraaj mein joh likhta hai bars
Garage mera full of napalm
Bawas, tere khaas luke warm
Ram ram, ye hai bhagwaan ka kaam
Toh pranaam kar!

Saeri meh wichith gasaan paagal
Hamesh korum yuas dilas manz aasum chahat
Sirinagariken kochen kin neerith aawus
Meh heu na kah, zan bha koshur hangul
Aazha gasi yeti athshar
Fhandh wanaan yim aksar
Bandh karan yim daftaar
Gandh karaan yim nafar
Aaz watan saeri chuent
Asli Koshur Hip Hop, Aazha gasi laaeth

You know what it is?
You're now rocking with the best, (che chhai paai – you already know)
They never did it like me, they’ll never do it like me
Facts, (asli koshur, asli koshur hip hop)

Lo dekho phir dene aaya dastak
Bhai bola dekh, tu darr mat
Rishtedaar bole ye sab tu kar mat
Issme na barkat
Tobha, astag - firullah
Ye meri jung jahilo se jaise Karbala
Kaale saaye mein umang, saare gumshudah
Aur joh inne na pasand hai woh sab gunnah
Kyu? na dekhte ye aaena?
Sikhaane chale kanoon, kayda
Auro ko neecha dikhaane mein kaise faida?
Jitna meetha sach, utna kadwa zaika!
Kahan se aata mein? sab se darrawni jagah se
Insaaf hi mana hai, gunegaari mein mazza hai yahan
Tu talve chaate toh bada hai, sach paale toh saza hai
Khud ki karna ek khata hai yahan
Pura bachpan jung mein pala hai
Dehshat ka samma joh geebat se bara hai
Harna, mere khoon mein kahan hai
Junoon ye gawah hai, maine maut se lada hai!

Prabh Deep:

Sadka'ch Khadde jhol vadde
Dharma'ch khot kadde
Modi paave mainu vote
Kehnda shehar chadh desh tu chala
Jedde udh deh hava vich
Ban de sitaare
Kaka disna ni tussi
Mere shehar vich pradhushan hoya boht
Soluchan da solution hoya joke
Jinna chota hove kaffan onha bhaari
Jung mangan toh pehlan dekh zara bachche di tu shakal
Uday utey gola baari
Sehan honi te ton [na]
Ki jigrah ve tere ton [na]
9-5 karo tussi job
Boss kolon fatte tvaadi gaand [Haan]
Peh gaya veh gaah [Yeah]
Media ne aake fer tamasha ve banana
Mere vangu loka nu hasaana
Meri kutti da dimaag twaade toh ve zyaada
Kinnu kat na kide naal khedna
Kinnu karna pyaar
Aeni hayegi samajdar
Lakh di hai laanat
Tvaade utte Mainu aawein menu ena gussa
Mere toh lita hoya tax
Tussi khoode vich sutte
Twaadi murtiyaan ne bharte
Gareeban de pet
Kisana de khet
Jawana de lekh [wait]
Menu chayedi aa azadi nakli soch toh
Pyon di pahunch toh
Kashmir di fauj toh
Menu rok lo ya thok do
Meri awaaz twaade toh zyaada bulandh
Lok sabha vich jinaa marzi bhonk lo
[facts bro]
Iss geet toh baad
Sarkar mere piche lagi honi
Menu kar dena ghoshit deshdrohi
Jedda change kare kam
Vatte khaanda ohi
Apne aap kolo puch
Twaade dil vich paida kitti kinne nafrat
Adda sach ae dikhake
Twaanu Pagal ay banande
Je poori sach di talab
Gharon nikal bahaar
Ik vaardat
Dus taraf camaray
Har taraf alag kahaani
Alag subaw {hojana}
Je inha kolon puchiya main aukha sawaal

Twaanu, aye jaal’ch phasaake
Naukar banaake
Iraade ehna de neech
Pooray karande twaad ton free'ch
Shit
Gal hogi ithe leak
