London (IP) - The epic anthem 'Salam Farmandeh,' Persian for "Hello Commander," was performed in English with the participation of nineties students in London.

Iran PressEurope: Boys and girls 7 to 15 years old from different nationalities participated in the performance of the "Hello Commander" anthem in London.

The song's singer was "Nur al-Din al-Kadhimi," an Iraqi citizen living in the UK, and parts of the piece have been combined with the Arabic language.

So far, the choir has been performed in Persian, Turkish, Urdu, and Arabic, but it was the first time in English. 

The piece was performed in the Islamic Republic's school and the Islamic Center in London. Hello Commander! is the title of a new epic song themed with support for the Islamic Revolution and its leader from the mouth of Iranian children. The pop choir has recently been chanted in every corner in Iran, from TV shows to schools and public places.

On May 26, some 100,000 people jampacked Tehran's Azadi Stadium to sing the song.

The song addresses Imam Mahdi, the 12th Shia Imam, and the prophesied apocalyptic savior in Shia Islam, who is believed to be currently living in occultation.

In a part of the song, children promise Imam Mahdi that they will tread on the path of Lieutenant General Qasem Soleimani, the Islamic Revolution Guard's Corps' Quds Force commander who was assassinated by the United States in Iraq in 2020.

The song was the first broadcast on Iran's national television on March 20 this year, after the Leader of Iran's Islamic Revolution, Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei, delivered a televised Persian New Year speech. Since then, the song was performed in schools and on national public occasions as a support for the Islamic Republic.

'Hello Commander' educates the new generation on the ambitions of the Islamic Revolution and encourages them to be loyal guardians to protect those ideals, which is seen as a step toward promoting the Revolution among the generations to come.
