BOMBYX Center for Arts & Equity

BOMBYX Center for Arts & Equity is a non-profit arts organization in Western Massachusetts. BOMBYX received support from the Consulate General of Israel to New England to host Israeli artist Ravid Kahalani. A description of BOMBYX's event with Kahalani posted on Israel in Boston Facebook Page (managed by the Consulate General) reads: "the Yemen Blues - Ravid Kahalani are back in Western Mass! Ravid Kahalani’s project begins and ends with the singer’s rhapsodic voice and a Yemeni accent acquired from childhood religious singing — but everything in the middle is global, funky, and outrageous. This time, buckle up for an electric performance at the intimate sanctuary of Bombyx Center for Arts & Equity in Northampton. Supported by the Consulate General of Israel to New England." Events like this one are part of an Israeli state effort to positively "brand Israel" in an attempt to whitewash the realities of Israel's colonial subjugation of Palestinians and theft of Palestinian land and resources.
