DAM - BEN HAANA WA MAANA

DAM fuse traditional Middle Eastern sounds, rhythm and intonation of Arabic-language rap and the unmistakably hip-hop attitude. Formed in 1999 DAM were one of the first acts to popularise rapping in Arabic (although they also rap in English and Hebrew) and have since become renowned for their unique fusion of East and West which combines Arabic percussion rhythms, Middle Eastern melodies and urban hip-hop. Their first single Min Irhabi (‘Who's the terrorist?’) racked up over 1 million downloads and brought the group to the attention of young people across the Middle East for both their distinctive musical style and the political and humanitarian subtext DAM’s third studio album, BEN HAANA WA MAANA, will be released on 07 June 2019

DAM is the first Palestinian Hip-Hop crew, who began working together in the late 90s. They became a household name in the Middle East in the early 00’s. Their female singer & rapper, Maysa Daw, has been listed as one of Vogues 5 Arab stars ‘setting the world alight’. They have recently toured in the UK, ending their run with a packed night at The Jazz Café in London. In March, DAM returned to the UK to perform at the BBCs prestigious Arabic awards.
