"Palestinian Unit", which is one of the few bands making hip hop style music in Palestine, is trying to "reflect the social problems of Palestine and the people's demand for peace through its music."
Mohammed Lomani and Shadi Abu Shala, the two members of a group of six, performed a small concert in Spanish capital Madrid where they arrived in for the first time.
"The main theme of our music is the unemployment, problems between the people and the government, Israel's occupation and the people's demand for peace. Our generation grew up by seeing the war and its bad consequences. We want to live a normal life like any young person, when the peace comes to Palestine one day" Lomani told Turkish press on Tuesday.
“Palestinian people see Erdogan as a respected leader"
Members of the band said they knew about Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan's planned visit to Gaza, and said, "we will be pleased if Erdogan visits Gaza. He is already loved in Gaza very much. Most of the new-born children are named after Erdogan. His picture is hanging on almost all of the windows in the city. Palestinian people see Erdogan as a respected leader."
They added "one day, we'd like to go to Turkey. Because we love Turks very much, and one day, we hope to share our music with them."Last Mod: 14 Mayıs 2013, 12:10
