Xefer Rahman sings for the Rohingya
In the wake of the recent humanitarian disaster with the Rohigya, musician Xefer Rahman has rendered her voice to fan out the grief and suffering of the downtrodden community. On the occasion of International Human Rights Day, the crafty vocalist has released a track titled “Rohingya's Cry” on her Youtube channel on December 9. Penned by Samir Hafiz, “Rohingya's Cry” was composed by Shahrin Shariar and Samir Hafiz. Xefer's poignant narrative of the Rohingya crisis, followed by a heartfelt melancholic composition has been showered with love from viewers, some of whom were seen tagging the song as the best artistic take on the issue so far. “I think the Rohingya are the most oppressed and vulnerable community in the world at the time. It was a humanitarian call for us to do something for them and this is why we have released the song,” Xefer said on her venture. The “Uncaged” singer also said that it was her responsibility as a musician to stand beside the community with her artistic means. The producer of the video, Mahboob Rahman, who is also the chairman of Star Cineplex agrees with Xefer.

Xefer's musical journey started from informal platforms, especially social media at the age of 17. After winning the hearts of millions with her covers, Xefer went on to create her originals and managed to get great responses to those too. Her videos were widely appreciated by both local and international audiences. The charismatic songbird released her debut album “Uncaged” under the guidance and direction of Nagib Hawk on August 25 this year.
