A March 11th Guardian article (“Gurrumul, Omar Souleyman, 9Bach and DakhaBrakha: the best global artists the Grammys forgot”) by Ian Brennan, on the lack of international inclusivity in the Grammy Awards global music category, cited some deserving bands from the Middle East, including this rap group:
However, the Da Arabian MCs are not from “Palestine”. They are an Israeli band, from Lod, near Tel Aviv. Though the band members clearly appear to identify as Palestinians, this doesn’t change the unambiguous fact that they are Israeli citizens and live in (pre-67) Israel – not in “Palestine”.
We’ve complained to Guardian editors about the error.
