The collective was founded by artists Boikutt, Stormtrap, and Aswatt and has always held a commitment to both the honesty of their work and the need to creatively rejuvenate Arabic culture. To this end they combine music ranging from Arabic electronic music, hip-hop, trip hop to downtempo with a deep sense of their local culture and imposing presence of Palestine in their lives. The outcome is a new specific distinct sound. .. .. RU (as producers and as MC's) has collaborated with numerous artists across the globe, including countries like Lebanon, UK, Switzerland, Italy, USA, France and many more, including a collaboration with Slovo (a band headed by the guitarist from faithless) in their track 'Nakba', which appears on their album "Todo Cambia" and with Kronos Quartet in the track 'Tashweesh' which appears on "Floodplain" .. .. RU has also performed live shows in Ramallah, Bethlehem, Vienna, London, Cairo, Lausanne, Amsterdam and Washington DC. Their shows are mainly a performance of their hip-hop tracks, as well as a few of their own electronic productions as a warm up. More recently RU has incorporated a visual set in their live performances brought to you by Palestinian visual artist Ruanne. RU hopes to give a voice to Palestinians and Arabs, bringing an alternative voice from the Arab world. .. .. Their lyrics and music are an expression of anguish and defiance, ultimately remaining a defiant voice of the colonized against the colonizer. They continue to play a big role in the Arab Underground cultural scene while slowly gaining wide global and local popularity."). Le groupe est composé de stormtrap (ramallah underground) (http://www.myspace.com/stormtrap), boikutt (http://www.myspace.com/boikutt) ("boikutt is a music composer, MC, and producer based in Ramallah, Palestine.

Le groupe serait marqué Fatah et anti-Hamas. Selon Laborio Sociale, "Il Rap palestinese – Intifada in musica", 24 mars 2010, "Ramallah Underground, con sede a Ramallah, nei Territori occupati, è nato dall’immediatezza della sperimentazione musicale e dalla necessità di dare voce a una generazione di palestinesi per affrontare un panorama politico turbolento e incerto. Il collettivo è stato fondato dagli artisti Boikutt, Stormtrap e Aswatt e con l’obiettivo di ringiovanire in modo creativo la cultura araba. A tal fine RU combina musica araba elettronica, hip hop, trip hop, downtempo con un’attenzione profonda alla cultura locale. Il risultato è un suono molto particolare e caratterizzato. RU ha avviato numerose collaborazioni in Libano, Gran Bretagna, Svizzera, Italia, Stati Uniti, Francia e in molti altri paesi. Spicca la collaborazione con Slovo, gruppo guidato dal chitarrista Dave Randall, per il brano “Nakba”, che compare nell’album “Todo Cambia”, e con il Kronos Quartetnel brano “Tashweesh”. Recentemente RU ha inserito una componente visiva nelle esibizioni dal vivo, in collaborazione con l’artista Ruanne. I testi e la musica di RU sono sinonimo di angoscia e sfida: in ultima analisi, ancora una voce ribelle dei colonizzati contro il colonizzatore. RU svolge un ruolo importante nella scena culturale araba underground, mentre lentamente guadagna popolarità a livello locale e globale."Stormtrap Asifeh (voir également Stormtrap Asifeh) est l'un des fondateurs du groupe il est également producteur et rappeur.

Jérusalem (camp de Chu'afât) : G-Town the Palestinian hip-hop makers (http://www.myspace.com/gtown2002) ("With the vast reach of the Hip hop culture in Palestine, this widespread phenomenon attracted the attention of Muhammmed al-Moughrabi a young Palestinian refugee from Shu'fat refugee camp located in Jerusalem in the occupied Palestinian territory who was deeply fond of this culture and waited too long to speak up and express his feelings and aspirations concerning the difficult circumstances of being a refugee in a creative way. Thus, his dream was applied to the realm of reality in 2002 when he launched a hip hop band under the name refugee of Jerusalem - G- Town- where G stands for Ghetto – along with Fadi Amous. They played the first beat of Hip Hop music and released their first album in 2007 with the name Dardakeh and thus were the first to play hip hop music in Jerusalem and use this culture as a mean to express the feeling of being a refugee and their sentiments towards their homeland, enemy, world and the middle east in general. One of their most well known songs was Sharq Awsat Jadeed (New Middle East). This song was known all over the world. Therefore, G- Town band can be taken as a great example of the success of the Hip hop culture in Palestine as its members have participated in many international festivals and tours, never to fail mentioning getting a MTV award, beside producing video shows, and taking parts in documentary films, composing music, and having the privilege of making soundtrack for an academy award (Oscar) nominated film").

G.R. started rappin' solo, i wanted to start rapping since the school days when i started writing poems of my creation on the desk, and that's when i had trouble with some mentally fucked up teachers that wanted me to clean my desk all the time, but i realized how much the lyrics i wirte were precious to me, so before cleaning and deleting, i used to write them again on my note book so i wont lose them. and i wrote too much that made me use many many notebooks. i started rappin' in arabic after i realized how it can be possible by the person who made the spark for me and for other palestinian rappers to start and that is " Tamer Naffar " from the "DAM crew"... and so went on with it. these days i'm writing about the general life of palestine, the west bank & bethlehem area in general. writing about the killings and assassinations of the israeli occupation resistance, and the animal cage that the occupation is building to fill it up with palestinians, also writing about the racism that palestinians are facing sometimes from each other, the palestinians that are killing each other, whether becoz of their religeon or their political affiliation, and it's better to say it how we live it and this is wut i do. I started the idea of " Beit Jala MCs crew " and i found that many rappers from beit jala city would love to join, many talents were discovered, and they will be introduced on my website to u, in songz that will be made for u to enjoy and have a simple idea of our life. I we hate religeous discrimination, race discrimination, we hate rage against women, we hate rage of men against men, and when we sound violent on a track, it is becoz this is wut we see in real life, and this is also wut we face, so the right thing to do also is to defend ur self with all u got. "long live the resistance, freedom is near, u can die in an instance, so never fear, to defend ur soul and defend ur love ones, use knives and even use gunz, coz i'll use anything if i have to, THIS G.R. & BEIT JALA MCs SO DONT STEP AGAINST US OR WE MIGHT STAB YOU."- G.R.

Le due ragazze, 21 e 24 anni, entrambe di Akko, hanno dato vita alle Arapyat, ovvero “Ragazze arabe che fanno rap”, e hanno dovuto superare non poche difficoltà per potersi esibire. “Quando abbiamo iniziato, qualche sconosciuto – gente di qui – veniva a dirci: ‘Siete donne, arabe e musulmane. Il rap non è cosa per voi’. Sapete, la comunità araba in Israele è conservatrice. Ma genitori e amici non ci hanno mai fatto mancare il loro sostegno. E adesso ai concerti abbiamo un buon seguito”, racconta Safaah. Nelle loro canzoni le Arapyat parlano anche dei problemi delle donne. Perché “la libertà delle ragazze musulmane è limitata e chiediamo che ci sia restituita. Non è questione di poter uscire con i ragazzi o di andare a divertirsi la sera. Ci vengono negati diritti ben più importanti, come poter studiare e lavorare, essere indipendenti. Molte di noi hanno il destino segnato: stare a casa, sposarsi, fare bambini”. Colpa della religione? “No, affatto: molti credenti hanno una mentalità aperta. I limiti vengono semmai da questa società, che è troppo conservatrice”. Allo stato attuale sembra che Safaah, con il nome di SAFAA 3ARAPEYE, abbia intrapreso la carriera solista, dato che la maggior parte dei brani in circolazione è solo a suo nome."

Both girls are under the age of 15 and already made a huge name in the Palestinian Hip Hop scene, Dmar is now one of the most requested bands to perform live due to the uniqueness and tremendous talent that both girls have. On why did they start rapping, Mai says:” we find Hip Hop as a simple way for us to convey our young voices to our surroundings, people can really here what two young girls are saying between kicks and snares”. The band has already recorded two songs in the “Under Ground Studio” in Nazareth, and is currently working on new material to release. The first single of Dmar is entitled “School” and it speaks about the girl’s reflection of the school they go to, from personal to more wise deep reflections on the school curriculum and the differences they see between their schools and the Jewish schools, the song was a major hit in no time. After the success of the first hit, Dmar recorded their next song witch is called “The Third Generation”, the song talks about saying to no to becoming Israelis over time, and refusing to forgetting our roots even if time and politics are forcing us to do that. In the song |”The Third Generation” – “Dmar” are featuring Adi Krayem from “We7” band in the chorus. Dmar are addressing a huge range of issues on their huge media coverage, as Amani mentions:”we are addressing all the forms of the occupation, from land and political occupation, to mind, media and cultural occupation”.

Selon Laborio Sociale, "Il Rap palestinese – Intifada in musica", 24 mars 2010, "È la band più fresca della scena hip hop palestinese. È stata formata a fine 2007 da Amani Tattur, proveniente da Reine, vicino a Nazareth, e Mai Zarqawi da Majd El Krum, un villaggio a nord di quello che oggi è chiamato Israele. Entrambe le ragazze hanno meno di 15 anni e si sono già fatte un nome nella scena hip hop: Dmar è oggi uno dei gruppi più richiesti dal vivo grazie all’unicità e al talento formidabile delle due giovani. Sui motivi della loro passione per l’hip hop, Mai dice: “Troviamo il rap un modo semplice per trasmettere le nostre voci all’ambiente che ci circonda”. La band ha già registrato due canzoni agli Underground Studio di Nazareth e sta attualmente lavorando su materiale nuovo. Il primo singolo di Dmar è intitolato “School” ed è una riflessione sulla scuola che frequentano e sulle differenze che colgono tra i loro istituti e quelli ebraici. La canzone è divenuta un grande successo in pochissimo tempo. In seconda battuta hanno registrato “The 3rd generation”: la canzone parla del rifiuto, in quanto palestinesi, ad assimilarsi alla società israeliana e alla lotta per mantenere vive le loro radici. In questo pezzo sono affiancate dalla voce di Adi Krayem dei WE7. Amani afferma: “Stiamo affrontando tutte le forme di occupazione, da quella della terra, l’occupazione politica, a quella delle menti, portata avanti dai media, l’occupazione culturale”. La band ha partecipato al “Under Ground Mixtape”, Cd che comprende tutti i rapper della scena palestinese, e sta attualmente lavorando alla realizzazione del primo album."

Salaman comes from a small village called Reneh, located in the north of what is now called Israel, Reneh is a five minute ride away from Nazareth, the historical city and the biggest city for Palestinians living in Israel. Bahaa’ started his musical career as a part of “Al 48” rap band with his college Essam Boulos. The band was named after the year that Isreal built a country over the remains of Palestine, and made it very obvious that they are a political rap band. In 2001 when Palestinian Rappers started to appear all over Israel, Bahaa’ and Essam both Hip Hop fans decided that they should be a part of this Cultural Revolution. Since they started, “Al 48” gained a name of a hardcore group, a one you don’t want to get into a “pen and pad fight” with, touching a wide range of issues from politics, to social and personal issues, reflecting street wisdom and revolutionary point of views.

Selon Laborio Sociale, "Il Rap palestinese – Intifada in musica", 24 mars 2010, "WE7 è uno dei gruppi leader della scena hip hop palestinese. Adi Krayem (22), Anan Qsem (23) e Alaa Bishara (21) hanno formato il gruppo nel 2001, dopo aver deciso di condividere i loro scritti e creare canzoni. Anan e Alaa provengono dalla città di Nazareth, che si trova a nord di quello che ora è chiamato Israele, mentre Adi proviene dal villaggio di Kana, vicino a Nazareth. Pur essendo di nazionalita israeliana, WE7 si considerano un gruppo rap palestinese. Quando gli è stato chiesto perché, Alaa ha risposto: “Ipotizziamo che la Francia domani conquisti Israele: gli israeliani diventeranno improvvisamente francesi? Io non la penso così, e poi Israele è ancora più giovane di mio nonno”. Il contenuto dei testi dei WE7 è un riflesso della loro vita ed è molto legato al conflitto israelo-palestinese. La musica, invece, è una speciale combinazione di culture, unisce melodie orientali e ritmi occidentali. Vale la pena accennare al ruolo di primo piano che il gruppo ha avuto nel Cd “ArabRap.net” del 2002, che ha venduto oltre 10.000 copie a livello locale, e nel film “Sling Shot Hip Hop” del 2008, presentato in numerosi festival cinematografici di tutto il mondo. WE7 ha anche preso parte alla “European palestine Hip Hop Tour 2008” e a centinaia di altri spettacoli ed eventi organizzati in tutta la Palestina. Nel 2007 è stato pubblicato il loro primo demo, prodotto nello Studio Underground, che ha venduto circa 5.000 copie in Palestina. Per il loro primo videoclip “Tu’ul mfaker shu?” si sono avvalsi della collaborazione del giovane regista palestinese Sari Bisharat. Il loro primo vero e proprio album dovrebbe essere uscito nel 2009 con il titolo “Sot El Samt”, che significa “Voce del silenzio”. Le influenze musicale dei WE7 comprendono 2Pac, Nas, Talib Kweli, Mos def, Jay Z, Mbs, Pharoahe Monch, Dead Prez, Notorious BIG, mentre per le liriche le ispirazioni arrivano da Mahmoud Darweesh, Tawfeeq Zayad, Fadwa Tuqan ed Edward Said. Negli ultimi due anni l’interesse attorno a questo gruppo è aumentato notevolmente grazie anche alle performance a livello internazionale. I WE7, inoltre, sono fra gli artisti più votati sul sito internazionale www.naseeb.com, un social network con oltre 350.000 iscritti."

Palestine 48 (Nazareth) : Eyad BC (http://www.myspace.com/eyadbc). Selon Laborio Sociale, "Il Rap palestinese – Intifada in musica", 24 mars 2010, "L’hip hop è formato da vari elementi inseparabili. Mc, break dance, graffiti art, dj e beat boxing sono le pietre che tengono l’hip hop insieme. Eyad Kassem, in arte Eyad-bc, è un maestro nell’arte del beat boxino, che consiste nella capacità di imitare tutti i suoni di una batteria (percussioni, piatti ecc.) e di altri strumenti con l’uso della voce. Cominciata la carriera all’età di 14 anni, Eyad Kassem è diventato presto uno dei beat boxer più abili nella scena hip hop palestinese. Eyad è un elemento indispensabile e di primo piano negli Underground Studio di Nazareth ed è raro trovare mc’s che rappano senza Eyad, che dà le prime battute. Ha suonato con quasi tutti i rapper della scena palestinese come beatboxer, guadagnandosene il rispetto, e il suo singolo “Al hya hek” (“That’s life”) ha rappresentato uno delle migliori produzioni dell’Underground Studio. Eyad ora sta lavorando al suo primo album e quando gli viene chiesto se porrà più attenzione al rap o al beat boxing, risponde: “È un album di hip hop, troverete tutto lì”. Essendo studente e lavoratore, è difficile per Eyad finire il suo album in fretta. Quindi bisognerà aspettare."

Palestine 48 (Nazareth) : Survivors (https://myspace.com/survivorsrap). Selon Laborio Sociale, "Il Rap palestinese – Intifada in musica", 24 mars 2010, "È un duo formato da Morad Abo Ahmad (Mcm-Moradios) e Shafek Khlief (Scorpion). Si definiscono “solo una normale coppia di Nazareth, città palestinese che, per uno strano caso, ora sta in Israele”. Hanno iniziato a rappare in tenera età solo per il gusto di farlo. Morad era un grande fan dell’hip hop e quando è nata una scena in Palestina si è unito a Shafek, che era alla ricerca di un gruppo al quale aggregarsi. Gli inizi non sono stati facili, per una serie di motivi, gli ostacoli sono stati molti. Proprio per questo hanno deciso di chiamarsi “Survivors”. Come altri gruppi palestinesi si appoggiano agli Underground Studio e sono al lavoro sul loro primo album, che uscirà presto. La loro massima è : “Il mondo appartiene a chi crede nella bellezza dei suoi pensieri”.

In 2001 when Palestinian Rappers started to appear all over Israel, Bahaa’ and Essam both Hip Hop fans decided that they should be a part of this cultural revolution and chose the name “Al 48” because they thought that their lives in Reine reflects the lives of the whole Palestinian youth under Israeli’s oppression.

Be true to your self and you will find it pouring on paper”. “Al 48”’s main goal is spreading awareness among the conquered minds of the Palestinians with blue passports, and revealing a hidden truth to the public eyes - one less happy and more true - from drug problems in Arab neighborhoods, racism and the political reasons of these problems. And they are doing so with amazing talents and techniques. Flows and attitudes hard to find at Brooklyn are found in Middle Eastern “Reneh”. So far “Al 48” are still an underground group mainly because of the problems of getting a record deal and the problems of making it to the media as an Arab among Israel’s majority of Jews and their demographical paranoia, but still, as an underground group they still have managed to release some hit singles that spread widely among hip hop fans in the area, they are currently working on their first full album and will be released fall of 2009.

Selon Laborio Sociale, "Il Rap palestinese – Intifada in musica", 24 mars 2010, "È molto raro trovare giovani rappers con la consapevolezza che hanno questi ragazzi. Il gruppo è formato da Bahaa Rashed ed “Essam Boulos, entrambi di 20 anni. Provengono da un piccolo villaggio chiamato Reneh, che si trova 5 chilometri a nord di ciò che è chiamato oggi Israele. Il nome della band deriva dalla data della Nakba, la creazione dello Stato ebraico, che ha sancito la cacciata del popolo palestinese dalle sue terre. Nel 2001, quando i primi rappers palestinesi sono apparsi in Israele, Bahaa ed Essam hanno deciso che dovevano prendere parte a quella rivoluzione culturale e hanno scelto il nome AL 48, data simbolo dell’inizio delle sofferenze del popolo palestinese. Sin dall’inizio si sono guadagnati un nome sulla scena hip hop. I loro testi toccano una vasta gamma di temi, dalla politica alle questioni sociali e personali, riflettendo la saggezza di strada e il punto di vista rivoluzionario. Alla domanda sul modo in cui scrivono i loro testi, Bahaa risponde: “Arrivano dal cuore, da quello che ci succede come individui che vivono sulla strada”. L’obiettivo principale di AL 48 è diffondere la consapevolezza tra le menti dei loro fratelli, rivelando verità nascoste agli occhi del grande pubblico, le meno felici e più vere, dai problemi di droga nei quartieri arabi al razzismo. E lo stanno facendo con un talento straordinario e grande tecnica. Finora AL 48 è ancora un gruppo underground, soprattutto a causa della difficoltà di ottenere un contratto discografico e della paranoia demografica dello Stato ebraico, che vede nella diffusione dell’arabo cantato una minaccia. Come gruppo clandestino hanno prodotto alcuni singoli di successo, che hanno avuto un buon riscontro tra i fan dell’hip hop della zona. Attualmente stanno lavorando al loro primo album, di prossima uscita."

They always had bumps on the way during these three years, but despair never took over them; they always did and do strive to uphold the cause of the 1948 Palestinians and all Palestinians in general. Furthermore, this is not the only issue resonant in their songs; there are presonal and local issues that are addressed in their singles.

Sameh uses rap music to deliver a message to his fellow Palestinians, to fight for their right for national identity, to remember their history and to take pride in their Palestinian nationality. His lyrics are very blunt and direct. He is influenced by the success of the African amrican rappers in America that protested about the poverty and misery of their lives in the slums. Sameh identifies with their music and their situation and is inspired by them. Sameh criticizes his Arab neighbors in Ramleh that turn to drugs and violence instead of getting an education and caring for their future. Sameh believes in his music and in his own ability to make a difference and to give hope and pride to Palestinians all over the world.

Despite their different backgrounds, they all felt rap music when they first heard it and it brought them together to express their own ideas through rap. Their songs talk about Palestine, Damascus, poverty, the new generation, what it's like to live in the camp, and the situation of refugees living outside of Palestine. They want to send their message to everyone, not just to young people – a difficult job in Syria, where people don't understand rap very well. Laj2e al-Rap are working on their own to change people's ideas about rap, while supporting themselves despite not having a lot of money. Although they occasionally sing in English, their focus is on bringing Arabic rap to the rest of the world. Since the group started together in 2006, the guys have released an underground album and performed in concerts all around Damascus: they've performed at clubs (Caesar's, Jet Set, Sarai), Al-Jalaa' Stadium, the Arab European University, and at Arab and Palestinian cultural centers.

I-Voice members perform their very own genre, Trap (Tarab Rap), Tarab being the classical music genre of the Arab culture. Trap integrates Tarab into hip-hop through instrumentation and choice of beats, thereby creating an original output that naturally reflects the combination of I-Voice's surrounding culture and their modern frustration. I-Voice consists of two Palestinian rappers living as refugees in Lebanon: Yassine aka YEAH-SEEN and Mohammad Turk aka T.N.T. Their refugee camp in Lebanon is Burj Al Barajneh Camp, which resides only 91 Km north of their unreachable homeland. It all started when Yassine decided to build a "camp record studio" in an old space, and considered it his headquarters for learning and teaching sound, recording, beat-making, and mixing along with interested residents of the refugee camp. I-Voice are now a widely spreading crew, who toured to tell their story through Lebanon, Egypt, Spain, Italy, Belgium, Norway, Canada and USA").

I-voice has played in Egypt and some European countries; they were also involved in many activities and workshops in Palestinian refugee camps in Lebanon as well as different concerts within the country. In 2007 I-voice decided to build a recording studio in Bourj Al Barajneh refugee camp where it was considered the headquarters for learning and teaching music productions. The studio made it easier for I-voice to learn new techniques that helped them improve themselves; it also helped them teach music to young adults that are interested from Bourj Al Barajneh and other refugee camps in Lebanon. Yaseen's experience involves a lot of music/audio productions as well as sound engineering and project co-ordinations. He worked as Sound Trainer at Arab Digital Expression Foundation in Egypt and contributed as Projct Coordinator with Studio Camps produced number of experimental films. Throughout moments of struggle and joy, Yaseen and TNT wrote about the soul of the camps and their life within them, they worked on numerous songs and released  “Greetings/Ta7iyati” Mixtape.   In 2010, Yaseen moved to Canada in order to continue his education in Audio Engineering & Recording Arts, where he is also working on developing his skills in beat production. Yaseen has released his solo mixtape in 2011 under the name of "Stateless". TNT has moved to Europe with the hopes of better future for his life and career.

Liban (Saïda) : h2Z rap (http://www.h2zrap.com/) ("h2Z, a palestinian arab rapper/producer living in lebanon, he's an underground rapper with alot to offer. h2Z is a one man show, he takes care of everything, the writting, the beat making, the recording and mastering, and finally the distribution and selling, in short, he has no support except for his fans and friends. h2Z was born in Kuwait in 1986 where he lived for four years, but due to the gulf war, his family had to move to Lebanon where he lived for the most part of his life. Inspired by the tragic events in his homeland palestine and elsewhere in the world, h2Z adopted rap music as a way to araise against injustice suffered by his people and to deliver a humanitarian message through his music to anyone who supports the Palestinian cause. h2Z's career began in 2004 when he was introduced to the production business by the profilic egyptian rapper Seen, and soon he started producing his own tracks as he established his own local lable which he called Evolution Productions, and produced many tracks for himself and other musicians in Lebanon. In 2008, h2Z released his first arab rap album titled "3aed" Which contained 17 tracks, and featured many Palestinian and Arab artists including Re2bal and Amal Kaawash. The political inlfuence was heavely noticed throughout the album and was generall well received. The Album also featured the hit single "Ana Falastini" As the result of the increased media attention in the phenomenon of Arabic rap, h2Z appeared in several documentaries that discussed the spread of HipHop in the Middle East, most notebly by Sky Italia and Al Jazeera News Channel"), h2Z AKA The Wizard (http://www.myspace.com/h2zrap) et h2Z Rap (@h2Zrap).

Liban (Nabatieh) - Paris : Rayess Bek (http://rayessbek.com/) ("Wael, auteur, compositeur et  interprète libanais, s’est révélé comme le  représentant majeur des mouvements rap et slam au Proche-Orient. Après avoir  fondé le groupe Aks’ser (Sens interdit / A  contre courant) en 1997, il débute une carrière en solo sous le nom de Rayess Bek en 2002. A 31 ans, Rayess_Bek partage sa vie entre  Paris et Beyrouth. Il a connu deux guerres tragiques qui marquent nécessairement son écriture. Ses propos cinglants, acérés, ciselés et engagés, qu’ils soient en français et/ou en arabe, parlent bien évidemment du Liban, de ses crises et de son énergie, d’une jeunesse pleine d’envie déçue par le pouvoir politique, de sujets de société qui se comprennent des faubourgs de Beyrouth aux abords du « périph’ parisien ». Il parle résolument de la guerre, des combats et de la situation internationale. Son univers polymorphe, teinté avec finesse d’une forme atypique de hip hop et de slam, fait se rencontrer mots arabes et français, beats orientaux et instruments traditionnels comme le oud et le nay. Après s’être nourri de belles et récentes collaborations avec des artistes comme RZA, Nile Rogers, Amazigh Kateb et Ministère des Affaires Populaires (MAP), Rayess_Bek s’est entouré d’une nouvelle formation Rayess Bek Orchestra (oud, flûte traversière/nay, basse/contrebasse) qui prend les tonalités d’une fusion électroacoustique pour donner corps à ses nouvelles compositions et réarranger certains  titres. Ce nouveau projet est soutenu par ARCADI et Canal 93. En 2003, Rayess_Bek sort son premier album solo, 3am behkeh bil sokout (Parler dans le  silence), sur un label indépendant, suivi en 2005 par Nuit gravement à la santé. On peut  retrouver quelques-uns de ses titres sur des compilations internationales, comme Guerriers pacifistes. En mars 2006, il écrit et arrange un morceau pour l’Organisation des Nations Unies (ONU). Ekhtilef Tabiyeh (La différence est normale), en faveur de l’acceptation du handicap, est  diffusé sur les chaînes de la zone Afrique du Nord et du Moyen-Orient (plus de 20 pays  touchés) pendant plusieurs mois. Il collabore également sur la bande son de longs métrages libanais. A l’automne 2006, Rayess Bek participe à une résidence à Los Angeles conçue par Miles Copeland, producteur notamment de Sting, Lou Reed, Tina Turner et suivie par la chaîne culturelle PBS. Il collabore sur 2 titres avec Nile Rogers, leader du groupe CHIC, compositeur  et guitariste de David Bowie, Peter Gabriel, Madonna ou encore Eric Clapton ; avec le rappeur mexicain Malverde ; avec RZA de Wu Tang Clan, groupe phare du hip hop underground ; avec le rockeur engagé Shavo et aussi avec le compositeur de musiques de films Steven Last pour  Bagdad Burning. Pour clore cette résidence, Rayess Bek donne un concert au Roxy Theater, scène emblématique de Los Angeles. De retour des Etats-Unis, il débute une résidence d’écriture et de création à Roubaix avec Amazigh Kateb, leader du groupe Gnawa Diffusion, et le Ministère des Affaires  Populaires. En 2007, après le succès d’Ekhtilef Tabiyeh (La différence est normale), l’ONU demande cette fois à Rayess Bek d’écrire un morceau contre le trafic d’armes dans le monde. Il choisit de collaborer avec Frank Fitzpatrick, le compositeur du film « Friday » interprété par le célèbre rappeur américain Ice Cube.  « Just Like You» sera un subtile mélange d’Arabe et d’Anglais. En 2008, Rayess Bek compose la musique d’ « Instant de chute», une performance multidisciplinaire qui mêle danse, son et image, mise en scène pas Nancy Naous. Mêlé au public, Rayess Bek manipule des sons en temps réel, à partir de ses propres compositions et en interaction avec les danseurs. En 2009, Rayess Bek est sélectionné pour le Grand Zebrock, tremplin musical en Ile-de-France. Son groupe, Rayess Bek Orchestra, finira parmi les 3 finalistes sur 350 groupes sélectionnés. De 2010 à 2011 Rayess Bek compose l’intégralité de la bande sonore de « Shankaboot » (www.shankaboot.com), première web-série du monde arabe, produite par la BBC (Londres) et Batoota Film qui remporte le premier prix dans la catégorie « programme digital : fiction » aux Emmy Awards en 2011. En 2010, Rayess Bek participe aussi à l’organisation d’une marche pour la laïcité au Liban, un sujet central de son œuvre et qui lui tient particulièrement à cœur dans un pays ravagé par les clivages religieux. Il compose et interprète le Jingle de cette marche. Le 25 avril 2010, plusieurs milliers de personnes défileront de manière pacifiste dans les rues de Beyrouth. Une nouvelle « Laïque Pride » se tiendra à Beyrouth le 17 avril 2011. Jouant la carte des rencontres entre musiciens français et artistes venus d’autres horizons, le festival Marsatac fait appel à Rodolphe Burger, leader du groupe Kat Onoma dans les années 90s et complice d’Alain Bashung, Frédéric Nevchehirlian, Ziad Saad, Rayess Bek, Fadi Tabbal, Julien Perraudeau, Youmna Saba et Abed Kobeissy pour créer le collectif Mix Up Beyrouth. Après s’être produit sur plusieurs scènes nationales, le collectif a pour objectif l’enregistrement d’un album qui paraîtra en 2012 sous le label Harmonia Mundi / Acte Sud. Fin 2010, Dash Art, association d’art contemporain basée à Londres, fait appel à Rayess Bek pour deux résidences d’écriture autour des Mou’allaqāts, ensemble de poèmes pré-islamiques qui ont servi de modèles aux poètes arabes pendant près d’un millénaire et demi. Rayess Bek s’associe donc à quatre autre rappeurs du Moyen-Orient, dont Tamer Nafar du groupe palestinien DAM et Rabbah du groupe Algérien MBS. Les résidences se terminent par un concert à Londres, au célèbre Roundhouse, avec la participation du rappeur new-yorkais Talib Kweli. Cette même année, Rayess Bek sort l’album du groupe Rayess Bek Orchestra, accompagné au Nay et à la flûte traversière par Naissam Jalal, avec Yann Pitard au oud, Yves Bittar à la basse et Manu Sauvage aux machines. « Khartech Aa Zaman/L’homme de gauche » est un album à deux volets qui reflète sa double culture : 8 chansons en arabe, 7 chansons en français. D’un côté Rayess Bek critique les travers de la société libanaise, de l’autre les clichés occidentaux sur le monde arabe. En 2011 Rodolphe Burger invite Rayess Bek à participer au projet « Cantique des Cantiques, Hommage à Mahmoud Darwich ». A travers le chant et la musique, Rodolphe Burger fait s’enchevêtrer la poésie contemporaine de Darwich et celle sacrée de l’Ancien Testament. Rayess Bek est un artiste phare au Liban. Il s’est produit sur les scènes du monde entier : Moyen-Orient (Liban, Syrie, Jordanie, Émirats arabes unis, Qatar), Europe (France, Allemagne, Suisse) et Etats-Unis. Avec plus de 200 concerts, il s’est révélé dans des shows  en solo, des plateaux partagés de festivals, des espaces intimistes ou encore dans la démesure de Palais des congrès, en première partie de Missy Elliott ou de Busta Rhymes), de son vrai nom Wâ'il Qdayh, est libanais et se revendique comme tel mais sa grand-mère paternelle était une réfugiée de Galilée et la Palestine constitue une part de son imaginaire.

GaZa-NY (http://www.facebook.com/GaZaNYMusic) ("In a world full of diversity, rapper GaZa-Ny emerged in 1999 as one of the most controversial rappers to ever grace this genre. GaZa-NY expressed an outspoken, self empowered swagger that rallied the streets of his city and elsewhere. Using his biting wit and incredible skills to vent on everything from childhood experiences in the middle east to the cold streets of brookyn new york, his success was stunted by an FBI investigation in 2001 (confiscated his masters accusing him of creating music which can cause an uprising of young arab americans). The controversy over his lyrics was the best publicity any musician could afford, and being the first palestinian rapper to make a significant impact in years may have given him a platform not afforded to equally talented African American rappers. Such headline worthy drama informed GaZa-NY’s provocative rhymes, which he delivered with both masterful flow and a wise perspective over breathtaking beats produced by “The Bellringers” (formally with murder inc., produced a number of hits, a few being “put it on me” by Ja Rule and “its so hard” by the late “Big Pun”) and “Young Gav” (brother of hit female rap star “Foxy Brown” and producer of hit singles like “Hate me now” by Nas). GaZa-NY likewise collaborated with big named artists to work on releasing an album. He even linked up with artists such as Wyclef Jean, Mos def and Beanie Sigel. In the end, GaZa observed and decided to work on an album alone and used these influences to help create his own project. Born Jawad Saleh, second of four boys, GaZa-NY excelled in school with honors and achieved a Doctorate degree at the age of 22. He grew up on the streets of downtown Brooklyn, home of Biggie and Jay-Z in a predominantly middle eastern neighborhood on Atlantic Ave and Court St, also known as “Little Arabia”. Despite his lifestyle, GaZa developed a high degree of literacy that would later characterize his rhymes. At the same time, though, he delved into street culture and flirted with danger on occasional trips to the middle east, such experiences similarly characterizing his rhymes. A mix tape was released in 2002, sold out of the trunk of cars and apartments it formed quite a buzz amongst his peers. T-shirts were sold by the thousands and GaZa-Ny was becoming a name not to be reckoned with. GaZa-NY continually matured as an artist, evolving from a young street disciple to a vain all knowing sage to a humble patriarch.His style was noted to have the depth of nas, strength of tupac and controversy of eminem. GaZa’s diversity was proven in his songs, going from a heart throbbing female tale like “Why I cry” to video and dance club record “World Party” he paints a perfect picture of his effort to touch a part of everyone’s experience. In all the controversy surrounding GaZa’s lyrical content, they wrote two articles in the “Source’ magazine on his music and he made the centerfold of “The Spin” in the December issue of 2001. On December of 2005, GaZa-NY’s success began when he met up with middle east’s “Signature Productions” CEO and cofounder Nabil Joseph Issa. Nabil was working on an independent documentary of middle eastern artists affected by the world trade crisis when he came upon GaZa-NY’s name from New York’s DJ Stretch Armstrong. They arranged a sit down in a diner on the upper east side in NYC and that is when GaZa was asked to rap by Nabil. GaZa hit him with a breathtaking 16 bars and the rest was history. A few months later Nabil’s Team flew GaZa-NY out to Lebanon where he worked with pop star Ramy Ayash and mega hit producer Jean Marie Riachi. Amid all the drama, GaZa managed to salvage his esteemed reputation and reclaim his position on the New York scene. In 2011, GaZa and his brother decided to take matters into there own hands and partnered up to launch independent record label Floose Entertainment. GaZa has also recently re-released his controversial mixtape “Trapped in 2 Worlds” for free to more than 100, 000 fans on face book and plans to release his debut mixtape “America’s Nightmare” early 2012. He also completed a powerful song with Egyptian pop star Lara Scandar dedicated to the courageous egyptian people of the historic revolution. This record was also produced by Jean Marie Riachi., which is set to be released later this year. The brooklyn born Palestinian artist is something totally out of the norm. I guarantee he will be a powerful force in days to come.")

Etats-Unis (New-York) : Hammer Brothers. Selon Shinkicker (29 janvier 2018) qui le classe parmi les 15 meilleurs groupes palestiniens de hip-hop, "The Hammer Brothers were founded in the late 1990s by real brothers Mustafa and Omasik. Hailing from New York they are descendants of the Nakba refugees of 1948. Mustafa learned his trade with the hip-hop band "Dujeous'"at underground gigs in Manhattan. Omasik began with the beat production squad 'Everyday Wonders' in the Bronx several years later. They became regulars on the college circuit including holding lectures as well as gigs. The Hammer Brothers address issues of racial profiling and discrimination against Arabs in the USA while expressing solidarity with Palestinians in the Occupied Territories and also those around the world. Their most well-known song is "Free Palestine." Selon (1er janvier 2003), "Mustafa et Omasik, deux frères descendants directs par leur père de la vague de réfugiés palestiniens de 1948, commencent leur aventure dans le hiphop en 1993, d’abord chacun de leur côté, avant de former vers la fin des 90’s le groupe The Hammer Bros. .C’est en 1998 qu’ils sortent leur premier EP, « Proper Medium », puis ils écument les salles de concert ainsi que les facultés afin d’instaurer des débats que leurs origines et leur position dans la société américaine ne manquent pas de générer. Continuant sur leur lancée et forts d’une expérience acquise dans l’underground, ils sortent aujourd’hui « Free Palestine », album dont le titre à lui seul ne doit pas laisser de marbre le public américain." En 2018, je n'ai pas trouvé de présence propre sur le web.
