PH. ANDREA BOCCALINI

È la mia prima colonna sonora per un film che non sarà mai girato. Da quel momento avevo deciso che avrei cominciato a comporre i miei dischi così. Musica che potesse evocare, che potesse raccontare di un sogno, un sogno mio che poteva essere parte di un immaginario condiviso. Ho raccontato gli eroi di cui non sappiamo i nomi.
L’unknown Rebel è lo studente cinese che si mise di fronte i carri armati a Tiananmen. I miei eroi sono i partigiani, gli indiani, i napoletani che liberarono Napoli dal nazifascismo; sono i compagni e le compagne di Mandela; sono gli indiani di Wounded Knee. C’è la legge Basaglia, c’è la Primavera di Praga, c’è il Partigiano Johnny.
Il gruppo è meraviglioso: c’erano tutti i giovani che ora sono affermati e ancora unici. Poi c’è la poesia di Michele Rabbia, unica e indispensabile. Ci sono gli arrangiamenti di Dan Kinzelman, l’unico che sapeva capire tutto quello che non dicevo. È il mio primo disco per il pianeta terra.
La terra vista da lassù senza confini e senza frontiere.

"Despite his young age, Giovanni Guidi has no shortage of experience touring the world with artists like Enrico Rava and Gianluca Petrella's Cosmic Band. After releasing three CDs with his quartet and constant touring with his own projects, he has decided to try his hand at directing a tentet, The Unknown Rebel Band, dedicated to and inspired by freedom fighters the world over. In the artist's words, "a suite for rebels whose names will never be known, whose spirit appears throughout history and in all lands. This is a composition in which the voices of unnamed men and women emerge from the silence, affirming their own identity while at the same time uniting together into a global choir in support of their common goals" The titles of the compositions represent this inspiration, paying homage to the Italian Resistance, Prague Spring, Argentina's Desaparecidos, anticolonialist movements in South Africa and Algeria, the massacre of Native American's during U.S. expansion, the protest in Tien An Men and many other episodes whose heroes remain unnamed." (Jazz Italia)

"The debt to Charlie Haden's Liberation Music Orchestra cannot be denied, both for the openly activist intent of the project as well as for its folkloristic bent. Indeed, the compositions are often directly inspired by the music of the lands whose stories they aim to tell: Eastern Europe, South America, Naples during World War II, Africa to name a few. The result is a sort of musical manifesto, a declaration of fealty to the rebel spirit and its manifestions throughout human history on a global scale, paying homage to unnamed militants whose sacrifices were the price of the freedoms we enjoy today."
