Muqata'a (2019)

Ramallah, Palestine

As the “godfather” of Palestine’s underground hip-hop community, Muqata’a has made a career out of disruption and activism. With a name that means “disrupt or boycott” in Arabic, Muqata’a makes instrumental hip-hop that takes the genre’s roots in political activism and repurposes them to provide a vital force for Palestinian resistance.
