It's amazing how people can take the worst situations, and turn them into art.
Ramallah Underground is a band that does just that. Based in Ramallah, the male trio that makes up this bank are forging a new sound that they hope can give a voice to Arab youth in Palestine and the greater Arab World. Moving past the mostly mindless pop of mainstream Arabic music, they combine the despair often felt in this part of the world with messages of hope and raw energy that urges the youth in this part of the world to fight on for a better life.
All this, combined with good, good music - what more can you want? Here is one of their songs, "Nateejeh Bala Shughul," meaning "Result Without Work."
