I just now learned about this through Facebook. Very exciting. Hawgblawg readers, please attend, and send reports! Note that the shows are often in conjunction with screenings of Slingshot Hip-Hop, and that several shows have other guests on the bill, including the likes of Suheir Hamad, Abeer, Invincible, Dead Prez and Muhammad al-Farra of Gaza rap group PR.

hey. thanks for this. i plan to interview Tamer Nafer of DAM on my radio show Sonic Planet this Saturday. www.wicb.org 5-7pm EST

Also saw with interest your post about Al Kweiti brothers on your other blog. Old friend Yair Dalal has been involved in promoting/preserving their legacy in Israel. He says there are piles of recordings of the immigrant radio performers at Kol Yisrael archives.
