Students for Justice in Palestine are bringing DAM to Berkeley as part of the US tour for their new album "Dabke on the Moon." This event is a cultural and political musical performance by DAM, the first Palestinian hip hop rap crew and one of the first rap groups ever to rap in Arabic. They represent a burgeoning Palestinian voice, one that speaks of politics, social justice, and love, contained in memorable music and rhyme.
--Suggested donation of $5 :)
(No one turned away for lack of funds.)
