Rock/Pop Artist Mohammad Zaheer Releases Newest Album ‘Angry Ballerina’, With All Proceeds Going to Charity
Politically fuelled rock/pop artist Mohammad Zaheer has recently released his newest album Angry Ballerina, written to raise awareness of the plight of the people of Yemen and the Rohingya and raise funds for the charities assisting them.
Originally consisting of Mohammad Zaheer and Ashar Ali, both hailing from Pakistan, the name Angry Ballerina was inspired by activists fighting for the rights of the disenfranchised and being repeatedly dismissed as ‘a bunch of angry ballerinas creating a hullabaloo over nothing’. Since the duo often write politically conscious songs inspired by human rights, minority rights, gender quality and religious oppression, it felt a suitable title for their band.
The album itself features contemporary rock with hints to Eastern percussion, a nod at the pair’s heritage, with most tracks subtly discussing different political issues, love and empowerment. In addition to the album itself, the band have created their own clothing label under the same name after becoming aware of the exploitive working conditions of the textiles industry upon searching for a supplier to create band merchandise. They aim to eradicate modern slavery and raise awareness through music and clothing.
The album is available to stream and download via all major media providers now, with all proceeds raised donated to charity.
