It is Right To Rebel is an exciting and thought provoking new record from Mat Callahan & Yvonne Moore and friends. The double LP consisting of 15 tracks are mostly rooted in the folk music tradition with the unifying elements of rhythm, group singing and acoustic music. Lyrically it deals with topics such as the Zapatista uprising in Chiapas, political prisoners and environmental issues.
The central theme of the record is awareness. It is Right To Rebel is a battle cry, a wake up call, an invitation to join the struggles of our time, a celebration of rebellion and social movements and a musical thumbs up to all the people that realize that big changes have to be made.
The double album comes in a gatefold sleeve with cover art made by graphic designer and author of The Encyclopedia of Political Record Labels, Josh MacPhee, from the Justseeds Artists’ Cooperative. It includes a 12 page insert with lyrics and liner notes.
It is Right To Rebel is a true product of internationalism. It is recorded in Switzerland by an American and a gang of Swiss musicians, the cover art is made by an American activist from Brooklyn and the record is released by a Norwegian leftist record label.
