Based in Lod, about 20 kilometres away from Tel Aviv, Dam is a pioneering Palestinian rap band. Born in 1999, its name signifies “blood” in Hebrew and “remaining the same” in Arabic. In this double meaning resides the full scope of the band's drama: as pioneers of social and political protest in Israel they are also banned from residency in most Arab countries. Beyond geopolitical considerations, Dam presents a fascinating and prophetic blend of urban and traditional music, between East and West, in Arabic, English, Hebrew and even in French.
