Sosan Firooz First women start history in afghanistan(war country) threats from the Taliban, she raps in Dari, The young woman has been hit

"Listen to my story! Listen to my pain and suffering!" firroz says in the song, which boasts over 75,000 hits on the website.
The young woman has been hit with a series of menacing text messages demanding that she stop performing. Her mother recently received an anonymous phone call with a similar message.
"They told her ‘If your daughter appears on TV again, we will cut off your head,’" firroz explained.
But none of the risks have deterred firroz, who makes history performing in front of men, clad in western clothes, in a country where social norms keep women out of the spotlight.

"Everyone wants to be unique, to do something no one else has done before," said firroz, who hails from an impoverished neighborhood in north Kabul.

firroz’s music hits on a variety of different topics, including the repression of women and her desire for a peaceful Afghanistan.
"We are hopeful for the future in our country. And we request that our neighboring countries leave us alone."
Afghan singer and composer Fared Rastagar, who helped firroz record her first single, said the danger of being a woman on the stage in Afghanistan is real.
"Some female singers have stopped singing because of threats from the Taliban," Some have left the country."
The producer, however, praised firroz for continuing to put herself out there despite the risks.
"I admire Sosan for her courage and appreciate the support of her family," he told the AP when firroz’s single dropped.
She also raps about the difficulties of growing up as a child in neighboring Iran. She and her family fled there during the Afghan civil war of the 1990s.
"When war started in our country, there were bullets, artillery, rockets. All our trees were burned down. The war forced us to leave our country," she raps in Dari, one of country's two main languages.
