DAM - Emta Njawzak Yamma (When will we marry you?)
DAM is the Palestinian hip-hop pioneer. The members met in Lod, a mixed Arab/Jewish city southeast of Tel Aviv. DAM stands for both "eternity" in Arabic and "blood" in Hebrew… or just Da Arabian MCs in hip-hop parlance.
They are rapping in English, then Hebrew and Arabic. Their international is growing, especially here in the UK. They started to write initially about the Arab-Israeli conflict obviously, but equally about broader peace movements and some of the social challenges faced by a Palestinian woman under occupation.
