VA - Sound Of Revolution

The fall of the Iron Curtain thirty years ago was a unique event raising strong emotions all across Europe. What better way of recapturing the exceptional spirit of change that was in the air during these weeks than through the hymns that inspired the people tearing down the walls with their protests?

These hymns, brought together on this album, are the songs of workers´ movements, national anthems that were rediscoverd with a renewed meaning of self-determination and freedom, or simple pop songs which in their subtle wording expressed the spirit of protest felt by the people in the streets.

The Iron Curtain is down, but Imperialism is still up. And, worst of all, far right parties are commanding some of the ancient communist countries. What's to sing?

"Da stand auf einem Transparent `Wir sind das Volk´, und daneben hat einer geschrieben `Ich bin Volker´. Den Mann, der das geschrieben hat, den brauchen wir in der nächsten Zeit. Es geht um die Stärkung dieser
Kräfte." - Heiner Müller

Thanks for your thoughts. I think there are two sides of the same coin: The end of Stalinism is a reason to sing. The ongoing capitalistic system is destructive and unsustainable. It needs to be replaced.
