AHMER

AHMER

AHMER is a prolific rapper and producer from Srinagar, Kashmir. Since a young age, AHMER has been acutely aware of the violence that plagues that valley, and his lyrics reflect a self-critical and self-aware artist that is trying to make sense of one of the most complex issues of our time. By diving deep into his and his family’s history in the valley, AHMER manages to introduce to people to the complexities of the Kashmiri people and provides a more holistic view of their society.
