Gilad Atzmon: A conversation with Robert Wyatt about Cultural Resistance
Wednesday, 06 October 2010 05:09
by Gilad Atzmon

From Pond to River

The legendary British music icon Robert Wyatt is a big supporter of Palestine. A few days ago he came down  to London to promote For the Ghosts Within (Wyatt/ Stephen/Atzmon, Domino Records), a new album we produced together with violinist Ros Stephen.  We had a lively chat about Palestine, music, cultural resistance and about the importance of the  coming Jazza Festival.

For Robert Wyatt, music is where “people are introduced to each other”. “People were playing each other’s music long before they were mixing politically or socially” he says. Musicians can anticipate change. “In the deep south, white kids were listening to Black radio stations and Black kids listened to Country Music, long before these kids could share space or even meet”. Music has this unique capacity to cross the divide, to bring people together, to introduce harmony and yet, for some reason, not many musicians are brave enough to jump into the deep water. Not many musicians celebrate their ability to bring change about.
