SB023 / Léon les Cailloux • Mi Volto e Mi Rivolto

Recorded during the Spring 2020 quarantine in a kitchen and a garden with a portable recorder, Mi Volto e Mi Rivolto is a collection of traditional and protest songs, as well as two originals, by Léon Peyrony (FKA Léon et le Béton Coulé).

Beginning with a selection of Sicilian and Italian folk songs, the album then grew to include folk songs from Argentina, Mexico, Britain, North America and France, as well as two songs written in Aveyron and Strasbourg. Three songs from the album (Otto Ore, Qui peut faire, Casserolade), are taken from the songbook of la Chorâle, a feminist choir group begun in Strasbourg in 2019, of which two voices appear on the record.

Themes of summer, protest, friendship and sisterhood string the album together. Moving from women workers' demonstrations in the north of Italy a hundred years ago, to a group of friends taking shelter from the summer rain in Aveyron, to intersectional demonstrations in the streets of France in December 2019, and ending with Woody Guthrie's Hobo's Lullaby, Léon reworks songs from far away and long ago, and writes new ones too, in order to address our current times, mixing anger with solidarity, gratefulness, tenderness and courage.
