Band ‘Hadag Nahash’ was in Baltimore during riots

Israeli rap band Hadag Nahash was in Baltimore over the past few days, when public anger over the death of black youth Freddie Gray in police custody last week fueled violent riots which reached their climax Monday overnight.

“We got to the city several hours after the riots began,” one of the band members tells Channel 2 news. “We were told its best just to stay indoors and not go out to the street.”

“We made some effort, eventually we did the show for the few brave people that showed up,” he said.
