Afghan voices: Female rapper Ramika

In Afghanistan, young rappers gathered in Kabul earlier this month to compete to create a rap anthem for April's presidential elections.

Ramika, a 19 year old female rapper from Kabul, was among the competitors, with a rap about the importance of participating in the elections.

The Taliban have threatened those who go to the polls, but many youngsters in Afghanistan say they are planning to defy such intimidation.

In the latest of the Afghan Voices series, Ramika spoke to BBC News about how rap allows her to express herself and tackle important issues.
