“Songs Of Re­sis­tance 1942-2018” ANTI

Septem­ber 14. With his new al­bum Songs of Re­sis­tance 1948 - 2018, Ribot—one of the world’s most ac­com­plished and ac­claimed gui­tar play­ers—set out to as­sem­ble a set of songs that spoke to this po­lit­i­cal mo­ment with ap­pro­pri­ate am­bi­tion, pas­sion, and fury. The eleven songs on the record are drawn from the World War II an­tiFas­cist Ital­ian par­ti­sans, the U.S. civil rights move­ment, and Mex­i­can protest bal­lads, as well as orig­i­nal com­po­si­tions, and fea­ture a wide range of guest vo­cal­ists, in­clud­ing Tom Waits, Steve Earle, Meshell Nde­geo­cello, Justin Vi­vian Bond, Fay Vic­tor, Sam Ami­don, and Ohene Cor­nelius. Over a forty-year ca­reer, Ribot has re­leased twenty-five al­bums un­der his own name and been a bea­con of New York’s down­town/ex­per­i­men­tal mu­sic scene, lead­ing a se­ries of bands in­clud­ing Los Cubanos Pos­ti­zos and Ce­ramic Dog. Since his work with Tom Waits on 1985’s Rain Dogs al­bum, he is best known to the world as a side­man, play­ing on count­less al­bums by the likes of Elvis Costello, John Mel­len­camp, No­rah Jones, the Black Keys, and Robert Plant & Ali­son Krauss’ Grammy-win­ning col­lab­o­ra­tion Rais­ing Sand.
