‘Hip-hop travelogue’ beats on West Bank border
Yuri Lane began visiting Israel and the West Bank in the late 1990s, following his girlfriend, now wife, Rachel Havrelock, a religion scholar who studied on both sides of the Green Line that marks Israel’s pre-1967 borders. “From Tel Aviv to Ramallah: A Beatbox Journey,” their “hip-hop travelogue,” plays Saturday in Newton. “It’s not a political statement but a message of peace that starts and ends at a checkpoint,” Lane says.
