GAZA: the new single from Train to Roots.

TRAIN to ROOTS – Gaza

Train To Roots present the single Gaza, a preview of what will be their eighth album. A piece born out of the need to take sides, to take a clear and unambiguous stand against the ongoing massacre of civilians in the Gaza Strip and beyond.

The text takes inspiration from a poem by poet Peppino Mereu, published in the late 1800s titled Nanneddu Meu, a protest song in which, in the form of a letter to a friend, Mereu denounces the state of misery and oppression in which the lowest social strata found themselves in the late 19th century in Sardinia. Nanneddu becomes Muhammeddu and the scenario of misery and oppressed people moves to the Palestine of this new millennium. More than 100 years after the poem’s publication, unfortunately, the same lines describing the state of oppression in Sardinia can be brought back to the Palestinian people.

Recorded in analog mode at Roble Factory Studio, the track features electronic sounds such as the use of analog synths and a very urban drum pattern.

This single also marks the beginning of Train To Roots’ collaboration with the historic Neapolitan label Phonotype, the first record label in Italy and one of the first in the world, with a unique cultural heritage of more than 100 years of music. In the words of Nicola Tranquillo, label partner, “Naples does not allow itself to be intimidated and wants to demonstrate its rejection of silence in the face of what is happening in Palestine. Accustomed to encounter, welcome, and dialogue, we are convinced that the sea unites, and that is also why we want to entrust the meeting between Naples and the reggae made in Sardinia by Train To Roots with our message.”


Gaza
is available on digital platforms and is also released in 7-inch format along with another single by Neapolitan ska/rock band Bisca.
