Mastering a unique combination of Arabic percussion rhythms, Middle Eastern melodies and the band’s signature brand of hip hop, DAM has grown to become one of the most influential acts of the Middle East’s urban music scene.

Heralded as “the spokesman of a new generation”, DAM began working together in the late 1990s as the first Palestinian hip hop crew and among the first to rap in Arabic. Struck by the uncanny resemblance of the reality of the streets in Tupac’s video to their own neighbourhood of Lyd, they were inspired to tell their stories through this potent new medium. In 2016 Maysa Daw officially joined DAM with the release of “#Who_You_R”, an incendiary critique of social hypocrisy and norms. For their UK tour, they will be joined by their live band featuring singer, songwriter & pianist Nancy Mkaabal and DJ Bruno Cruz.

Captivating and cunning, the group has been featured in Rolling Stone, Vibe, Q, Reuters, and The New York Times, and has appeared on MTV, CNN, BBC, and Al Jazeera. Recently signing with UK label Cooking Vinyl (Goldie, Groove Armada, Trio Joubran, 47Soul) they are gearing to release their new album “Between Hannah and Mannah” and will be playing at London's Jazz Cafe as part of their highly-anticipated England tour.

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.

DAM’s 2019 England Tour is supported by Arts Council England.
