Bio

DAM, which means "immortal" in Arabic and "blood" in Hebrew was formed in 1998 by Tamer Nafar, Suhell Nafar and Mahmoud Jreri. The two brothers and their friend grew up together in Lyd, a mixed Arab-Jewish town near Jerusalem. The group has played an integral role in generating excitement and interest in the burgeoning Palestinian rap scene and brings a truly unique and pulsating voice. DAMs music is a unique fusion of east and west, combining Arabic percussion rhythms, Middle Eastern melodies, and urban hip hop. The album feature the themes of Israels Occupation and the Palestinian quest for equality amid discrimination, but Debka on the Moon also presents a critique of DAMs own society, addressing the issues of womens rights, religious conservatism, censorship and freedom of movement.

The group has been featured in Vibe, National Geographic, Rolling Stone, Q, Basement, Reuters, and The New York Times, and has appeared on MTV, CNN, BBC, and Al Jazeera.

Band : 3 MC's + 1 DJ + 1 VJ
