Gaza 3 – The messengers

There they sat. Chillin’ down with laptops, few shishas and some drinks. In a place, some kind of caffetearia, which name i forget all the time. They were different from other visitors. “So yes, this are the rappers” said Noor, who took us to that place. If they are Noor’s friends, they must be ok. I didn’t even think any different way about it, after greeting eachother there was instantly clear we’re on the same frequency.

The bright shining pearl of creativitiy, created in a shell-which is siege on Gaza. The DARG team. Soldiers of freedom using only bulletproof words that surely touch hearts and minds. In this given moment, i’m listening-with a goosebumps over my skin- their version of Onadekum, dedicated to the brother of all Palestinians, recently murdered Vittorio Arrigoni. The DARG team are;  Bassam, Sami, Mohammed, with supporting brothers in music Fadi, Adam and many others. The crew already successfully toured the Europe and again they will do it again in coming days. Italy,Sweden…if you are near, definitely it’s worth going around to  hear and meet them.

After spending some night time with them at Fadi’s house (the manager),having a good  time, we decided to spend another day with that crazy team. Imagine shooting a documentary about musicians. Nothing special. But now, set the scene into refugee camp. Jabalya camp. Which is one of the worlds most populated areas on earth – about 105,000 people, living in 1,4 square kilometers. In the streets, some as narrow as 1 meter, with whole army of a children running, yelling, jumping around the set. Totally surreal stuff. Definition of chaos got new perspective. Huge respect to the crew, specially to the camera guy-nerves of steel.

Tam so sedeli. Skulirano s prenosnimi računalniki, nekaj vodnih pip okrog mize in pijačo.. V nekem lokalu, katerega ime mi vedno uhaja iz spomina. Bili so drugačni od ostalih prisotnih. “No evo, to so reperji”, nas je predstavila Noor, ki nas je semkaj tudi pripeljala. Valda, če so Noorini prijatelji morajo biti ok Niti pomislil nisem na kakšno drugačno opcijo, saj ko smo se predstavljali drug drugemu, je bilo že jasno da smo na isti frekvenci.

Svetleč biser kreativnosti, ustvarjen v školjki-okupaciji Gaze. DARG team. Ekipa bojevnikov, ki so za svoje “orožje” izbrali neprebojno poezijo. Ravno v tem trenutku poslušam, s kocinami pokonci, njihovo verzijo pesmi Onadekum (kličem k tebi), posvečeno bratu vseh Palestincev, pred kratkim umorjenim Vittoriem Arrigonijem. DARG team sestavljajo, Bassam, Sami, Mohammed, s podporo bratov Fadijem, Adamom in mnogih drugih. Ekipa je uspešno zaključila turnejo po evropi, kar nameravajo v prihodnjih dneh tudi ponoviti. Italija, Švedska..če skačete kje okrog, definitivno priporočam, da jih slišite in spoznate.

Preživeli smo nekaj časa skupaj v hiši, kjer prebiva Fadi, manager, in odločili smo se, da se srečamo še naslednji dan, s to odfukano ekipo. Predstavljajte si snemanje dokumentarca o skupini. Nič posebnega, dokler ne vključih dodatnih faktorjev. Snemanje je potekalo v begunskem kampu Jabalya. Jabalya je mimogrede, eno izmed najbolj gusto poseljenih območij na svetu. S približno 105.000 prebivalci, ki životarijo na 1.4 kvadratnih kilometrih je nekaj. V ulicah, nekatere širine enega metra, z vojsko otrok za nami, ki se neprestanp derejo, skačejo okrog…Neverjetno! Če bi jaz pisal slovar, bi bilo včerajšnje dogajanje, nova definicija kaosa. Spoštovanje ekipi, posebej kamermanu z železnimi živci..
