This piece is written in tribute to a variety of anarchist, radical and otherwise liberation-based groups in Latin America, the Caribbean, Mexico and Spain, united in this context by style. “Anarchism in Spanish” makes harmonic and melodic reference to both flamenco and mariachi music, as well as rhythmic reference to Afro-Cuban sounds. It is meant to evoke images of the Zapatistas in their balaclavas and the Spanish anarchists fighting fascists in the hills. The work aims to be aggressive as well as poetic, reflecting both struggle and joy. It is titled as such because these otherwise disparate groups can be united under a single language, wherein the styles could learn from each other, in the same way their slogans and literature could be shared and learned amongst each group.
