NYC Artists Endorse Cultural Boycott of Israel at Brooklyn Event


On a chilly New York City night, roughly 400 mostly young people crowded into the offices of the progressive publishing house, Verso Books, in the Brooklyn neighborhood of Dumbo. With its avant-garde vibe, the space was the perfect site for Adalah-NY’s “Palestine Calling,” billed as a launch party “to amplify the cultural boycott of Israel in NYC.” Headline performers included Suhel and Tamar Nafar of the Palestinian hip-hop group DAM, oud and violin virtuoso Simon Shaheen accompanied by Firas Zreik on oud, jazz musician Daro Behroozi of Lucky Chops, vocalists Sonny Singh, Adam Matta, and Arun Antonyraj, as well as singer-songwriter Tamar-kali and DJ Myrto Joyce, who closed out the evening.
