The first CD of BIG (Brigada Intergeneracional) was released a couple of years ago. The collective has organised and collaborated in many memorial activities since then (eg 3 editions of Jornades FEM MEMÒRIA en Record de la Batalla de l'Ebre in different places where the Battle of Ebro took place), many concerts, cinema and conferences.
We need to keep adding more sensibilities with new songs. We need to remember what happened before, during and after the Spanish Civil War. Those who suffered and died deserve to be remembered and have their memory dignified. It is our struggle and we have our massive constructive weapons of great power: culture and education.
Our allies are all the artists of the Intergenerational Brigade for the Recovery of Historical Memory. For this 2nd CD we will have (if no last minute problems occur): Sergi Dantí, Berni Armstrong, Jordi Montañez, Darània, Xavier Carles & X. Batllés, Sabina Witt, Mike Wild, Joe Solo, Lo Gitano Blanc, Mariona Sagarra, Os Chotos, Joanjo Bosk, Rusó Sala, Jaume Arnella & Rafael Sala, Turnez & Sesé, Xavier Baró, Bruce Barthol, Arturo Gaya, Paco Prieto i Kike Pellicer.
Our brigadiers are mainly catalan musicians and singers, but international artists have joined the cause, too. We'll publish in our blog all the lyrics and translations to English of all the new album songs, as we did with on the first one.
What will be the money for
To get the CD released we need 2000€ minimum which includes:
- Manufacturing of 1000 copies of CDs
- Tax expenses for copyrights (SGAE, etc)
- Studio hours for the recording of some new unreleased songs by Rusó Sala, Darània or Sergi Dantí for example)
If we exceed the amount of money we'll make a better edition with more leaflet pages (lyrics and translations) and if there is even more we'll use the money to organise more memorial events or publish more memorial products.
There is a wide range of rewards. Search for yours! Any help will be very gratefully received to keep this project alive. Shipping costs are not included unless you live in Barcelona province.
All the rewards will be given by the end of winter or during spring.
