Three minutes and thirty seconds of triumph for Aleppo, Syria’s biggest city, recently freed from the clutches of Zionist-NATO-GCC terrorism. The embodiment of Mouqawamah Music.
An artistic piece of exquisite value, one of a kind and innovative. ~#~ This video was an initiative taken by the artists (without the President’s knowledge) to immortalize President Rouhani’s emotional speech, where he expresses hope for peace, friendship and progress. ~#~ Only at the later stages was the video shown to President Rouhani. ~#~ This melodic piece is the first time ever for a chorus to sing along with a formal speech by a prominent Shia cleric and high ranking Iranian politician. ~#~ Featuring musical instruments on video and singing by women are prohibited by Iran’s state television. ~#~ The fact that President Rouhani’s personal website decided to feature this video was a great and notable step to break this taboo and support Iranian artists. ~#~ To pay tribute and celebrate Iranians from all backgrounds, parts of the video are in Kurdish, Balochi, Azeri and Arabic.

Thank you Syria and Russia for the beautiful concert that took place today in Palmyra. I confess I watched it with tears in my eyes but my heart was levitating with the supernatural and magical power. Thank you, from the bottom of my heart. (‘The Old Sniper‘)
The concert “Pray for Palmyra. Music revives ancient remains” by Russian conductor Valeri Gergiev is scheduled to go ahead in Palmyra, Syria on Thursday, May 5. It will open with a welcome address by the conductor. Russian President Vladimir Putin will also make an appearance via video link. Consecutive translation from Russian to English and Arabic will be provided for both.
The date of the concert coincides with the handover for burial of the remains of special forces officer Aleksander Prokhorenko, dubbed the ‘Russian Rambo,’ who died after ordering an airstrike on his own position after he was surrounded by IS fighters. His remains will depart Moscow for his home village of Gorodky, Orenburg Region, where they will be buried in a ceremony with military honours.
In April, Palmyra was recaptured by the Syrian Army from the self-proclaimed Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL). Russian air strikes provided support to the Syrian armed forces in their re-taking of the town.
