Iraqi youth find new outlet in rap

By combining folklore with western-style beats, Iraqi youth have created their own form of hip-hop music.

    A new generation of Iraqis has found its own way of expressing despair and hope.

    Hip-hop is proving to be a powerful medium of expression at a time when millions of Iraqis are still struggling to return to normal life after years of war.

    They have grown up in a war-torn country, but their songs talk of hope.
