Ashoura 2011: “Ashoura, Lura, Lural, The Shiite Lullaby”

Time for the annual singing of Ashoura, Lura, Lural to accompany the public images of rabid “spiritual” self-mutilation across the Holy Shiite lands.

(Click below for the always moving rendition by Ayatollah Seyyid Ibn Pharteen)


And for those unfamiliar with this popular refrain, here it is:

Ashoura Lura Lural

 Ashoura Lura Li

 Ashoura Lura Lural

 That’s a Shiite Lullaby
