The first Palestinian hip hop crew and among the first to rap in Arabic, began working together in the late 1990s. DAM’s music is a unique fusion of east and west, combining Arabic percussion rhythms, Middle Eastern melodies, and urban hip hop.

Ten years of performing all over the world has strengthened DAM’s commitment to continue living in their hometown of Lyd working to provide the youth of the city and neighbouring communities with programs and opportunities that have otherwise been denied to Palestinian citizens of Israel.
