Zehnkampf – Festival des politischen Liedes 1970–1980

Next weekend we will have this years "Festival Musik und Politik", so let´s go back in time...

The Festival of Political Song took place from 1970 to 1990 in East Berlin, held annually in February (except during the Tenth World Festival in the summer of 1973). It was one of the biggest music events in the DDR (GDR) and an "international institution" (Mikis Theodorakis, 1983).
"Zehnkampf – Festival Des Politischen Liedes 1970–1980" ("Decathlon - Festival Of Political Song 1970-1980") is a compilation of live tracks, recorded between 1970 and 1980.

The first page contains primarily Spanish-speaking artists -  Inti-Illimani and Quilapayún are playing two important hymns of the South American socialists (Venceremos and El Pueblo Unido) . Side two starts with an excerpt from Mikis Theodorakis ' "Canto General", based on Pablo Neruda's poems, following are tracks from Gruppe Schicht and Jahrgang ´49 from the GDR.

In contrast, side three and four are dedicated to (West) German, European, African and Vietnamese artists such as is Franz Josef Degenhart , Floh de Cologne, Sands Family, Bots, Miriam Makeba and Singegruppe Hanoi. Finally, the double album closes with the song "Wir sind überall" ("We Are Everywhere") by Oktoberklub - a hymn and a manifesto of the artists and the festival.
