MARC RIBOT - Songs of Resistance

July 2018

In search of a way to respond to the racist, sexist, Islamophobic, anti-LGBT, anti-immigrant and anti-Semitic attitudes and actions of Donald Trump and his administration and followers, Marc Ribot draws on the deep currents in the history of resistance music for inspiration. Featuring a collection of Civil Rights, WWII European partisan resistance songs, plus a few originals, Marc is joined by fellow activist guest artists and musicians to create something that encourages people to engage in resistance NOW. 

\"The songs in this collection are what I wish I’d been able to hear or sing at the demos and benefits I’ve attended since Donald Trump’s election. Through them, I\'ve tried to channel some of the deep rivers of song from movements past into something that may be useful now. A few tunes are arrangements of US Civil Rights (We Are Soldiers In The Army, We\'ll Never Turn Back) and WWII European resistance songs (Bella Ciao, Fischia Il Vento). One is a Mexican romantic pop ballad originally written as a political attack (Rata de dos Patas). Others are my own tunes based on or inspired by these.\" -M. Ribot

A studio album will be released by Anti-Records in 2018 with guest artists including Tom Waits, Meshell Ndegeocello, Steve Earle, Fay Victor, Justin Vivian Bond, Astrid Hadad with proceeds benefitting activist organization Indivisible Guide. 

In promotion of the the album release, Marc will be touring in both a stripped down version (Marc - vocals/guitar, James Brandon Lewis - sax, Domenica Fossati (bgv, flute), Shahzad Ismaily-percussion)* or with full band and guest artists based on availability.
