SONG OF THE WEEK
Song: "Bella Ciao (Extended Version)"
Artist: Diego Moreno
T&E writer Greg Gonzales says, "When it comes to protest and revolutionary hymns, you can't go wrong with 'Bella Ciao.' Essentially, the story goes, a revolutionary fighter says goodbye, dies for the cause, and flowers grow out of the spot where they rest, where the people honor them. Abused workers sang it in 1800s Northern Italian paddy fields, the Partisans (likely) sang it through the Italian Civil War, and now movements worldwide adopt it as their own. Diego Moreno's version fuses the Italian Partisan battle cry into that of the guerrilla warriors of the Mexican-American War, swapping out "Partisano" for "La Guerrillero" in the final lines, mixing together Spanish and Italian throughout. You can find this song in almost every language and every genre -- no matter where we live, there's a cause worth dying for. Honorable Mentions:
Chloe Stafler (French folk),
La Fanfarria del Capitan (Balkan beat, Cumbia, ska), Skassapunka (ska-punk), and Chumbawamba.
