Hadag Nahash combines funky hip-hop with flavors of rock, reggae and Middle Eastern music. Feverishly devoted to equality and civil rights, the group is the soundtrack for the Israeli struggle against corruption and racism. The best-selling hip-hop artists in Israel, Hadag Nahash has shared a stage with The Black Eyed Peas, Cypress Hill, and Matisyahu, and was featured in the soundtrack of the Adam Sandler film You Don’t Mess with the Zohan.
Celebrating 13 years of the Washington Jewish Music Festival, the Hadag Nahash concert at The Fillmore-Silver Spring marks a coming of age for the festival. The DCJCC thanks the Howard and Geraldine Polinger Family Foundation for helping to establish the festival in 1999, its major support of this year’s festival, and for being the lead sponsor of the Opening Night Concert.
Co-sponsors: The Jewish Federation of Greater Washington, The Jewish Community Center of Greater Washington, Birthright Israel NEXT DC, The Jewish Community Center of Northern Virginia, The Embassy of Israel, Words Beats & Life, The Hip-Hop Theater Festival
