Chapter 1: Bella Ciao
Arkadiy Kots have recorded it with the participation of the incredible musicians from Salento Enza Pagliara and Dario Muci. It’s a part of the project we call Trans-European Partizan Jam where we are collecting the songs of antifascist resistance and recording them together yet distantly along with our comrades – international musicians and activists from Italy, Spain, France, Greece, Serbia and beyond.
We are doing this season of Free Home to revoke the spoken and sang histories of antifascism and dedicate it to the antifascists of all kinds that keep this struggle alive, to those who strike against social injustice, racism, xenophobia and all kinds of discrimination today.
