On November 11 we take a day from our work to reflect on the ravages of war.  While people in uniforms  carrying swords and guns gather at the Cenotaph we assemble at the Spirit of the Republic to hear other stories from other survivors.  Our event is meant to be the sharing of stories from all comers.  We’re inviting you to share your experiences, songs and poems.  


            White poppies will be available free of charge.

An Interview with Norman Nawrocki about His New Album, CAZZAROLA!



















He will be speaking in October at Victoria at UVIC and at Camas books (see DATES below)

By Norman Nawrocki

1. What kind of music is on CAZZAROLA!, the album?

It ranges from traditional Italian folk – kind of world beat, but updated – to contemporary Italian-themed compositions of my own that are folkloric, ambient, electroacoustic and somewhat ‘indie.’ The songs are arranged chronologically following the story in the book (CAZZAROLA! Anarchy, Romani, Love, Anarchy: A Novel), spanning 130 years of Italian history from 1880 to today. There are waltzes, folk dances, love ballads, prisoner songs, a marching band, and different kinds of soundscapes, from a 1920 auto factory and 1920s street noise, to Rome street music today. You will hear traditional Italian instruments on some songs: large tambourine hand drums, hurdy gurdy, bagpipes, bass mandolin, etc., and sampled/looped beat creations on others. Thirty tracks total.
