Heralded as “the spokesman of a new generation”, DAM began working together in the late 90s as the first Palestinian hip-hop crew and among the first to rap in Arabic. Bringing together a unique combination of Arabic percussion rhythms, Middle Eastern melodies and hip hop, they have grown to become one of the most influential acts of the Middle East’s urban music scene.
DAM will be performing a highly-anticipated and unmissable 4-stop UK tour this year, joined by their live band featuring singer, songwriter & pianist Nancy Mkaabal and DJ Bruno Cruz. Having recently signed with UK label Cooking Vinyl (Goldie, Groove Armada, Trio Joubran, 47Soul), they are also simultaneously gearing up to release their new album Between Hannah and Mannah. Captivating and cunning, the group has been featured in Rolling Stone, Vibe, Q, Reuters, and The New York Times, and have also appeared on MTV, CNN, BBC, and Al Jazeera.
Opening for DAM on this tour is none other than DJ Sotusura. The ever-cunning and creative DJ’s canny ability to mix classic Arabic samples with hip hop, as well as his dexterity on the turntables, has allowed him to emerge as one of the most proactive members of the Middle East’s regional hip-hop scene over the past 15 years.
