- On their latest project, "For Those Who Came After: Songs of Resistance from the Spanish Civil War," the Chamber-Rock ensemble Barbez cover vintage Anti-Fascist anthems. Barbez liberally incorporates avant-rock, contemporary classical, cumbia and flamenco styles to refresh anthems like “L’Internationale” (The International) and “Viva la Quince Brigada” (Long Live the Fifteenth Brigade). Bandleader Dan Kaufman is also a journalist. who has written extensively on the Spanish Civil War for The New York Times, The Nation, and The New York Observer. Over the course of that reporting he got to know many veterans of the Lincoln Brigade, inspired by their story enough to come up with this musical tribute. Barbez plays some of these anthems live on WFMU.
