Distinct Assyrian female voices singing the songs of the living legend Ashur BetSargis at MN 2015

Three of the most distinct Assyrian female voices singing the most inspirational songs of the living legend Ashur Bet Sargis. Having hand picked the songs himself, Ashur offers his perspective on solidarity, nationalism, and the continuation of hope through his lyrics. He is not only one of the most popular Assyrian singers, but also one of our most brilliant lyricists.  In addition, this past year amidst the struggles of our people in Iraq and Syria with ISIS, Ashur made several trips to the home land to give first hand accounts of the struggle and assist in providing humanitarian aid to those in need.
