Hargeisa, (Somaliland Monitor) -Very few emotions invoke as much poignancy in someone as much as patriotism does. The overwhelming feeling of pride that one experiences when the national anthem plays in in TVs, , or when you’re reading up on the Somaliland freedom struggle.

As the country is celebrating the 26th anniversary since reasserting sovereign independence from the rest of Somalia in 1991, famous Somalilander artist and songwriter Abdijibar Al Khaleeji has come up with a four-minute song for Independence Day, which highlights the importance of this day and Somaliland people’s  freedom struggle.

Abdijibar Al Khaleeji’s Independence Day song Dharaar Weeye Suntan” is available online on YouTube
