Dillin Hoox – Peshmerga (Prod. Quest) [Audio]
Ottawa, ON – Peshmerga, a term used by Kurds to refer to armed Kurdish fighters, have played a key role in the ever-changing Iraq-Syria story line and the fight against jihadist group known as IS (formerly ISIS). While they have been a hot topic in western media as of late, the Peshmerga forces protected Kurdish territories since early on in the 20th century. In Kurdish, the word Peshmerga translates to “those who confront death.”
Ottawa rapper Dillin Hoox, a Kurdish-Canadian himself, has released a new single paying homage to the group and the hardships suffered by Kurdish people over the past decades. Check out the Quest-produced “Peshmerga” below.
