Gaza exports loaded Rap to the world – DAM
Director Jacky Salloum first cought the beats of DAM, a Palestinian hip hop group based out of Israel/Palestine, and thats how this circle caught up to Slingshot Hiphop.
DAM was founded in 1999 by brothers Tamar and Suhell Nafar and their friend Mahmoud Jreri. The group’s name is the Arabic verb for “to last forever” (دام) and the Hebrew word for “blood” (דם).
Rap isn’t usually my cup of tea, but somehow it’s so much more authentic coming out from Gaza.
