14 images Created 15 Oct 2009

System Ali is a Hip-Hop ensemble of young Jewish and Palestinian Israelis, based in Jaffa, Israel. Their songs are in four languages: Hebrew, Arabic, Russian and English. In their texts they protest against Arab houses demolition in Jaffa and against discrimination that led to poverty and crime in their neighborhoods. The band was founded in 2006 in a bomb-shelter in Ajami neighborhood in the city of Jaffa. Its 11 members - M.Cs and musicians - bring to stage the rich, charged encounters and clashes between languages, musical styles, personal stories and inspirations - drawn from the every day realities in the city of Jaffa. These are the fuel of the band's creation and strength, establishing itself as the leading Hip-Hop crew of Jaffa and South Tel-Aviv
