Eleven songs of struggle, of resistance.
Eleven fists raised in music that inspire change

It was an evening in 2020, we were all in lockdown, hostages of the pandemic, confronted with ourselves outside the whirlwind of everyday life.
Added to this confinement were violent words insinuated by the media: some professions, some vocations, some life paths would be more "essential" than others. Musicians in particular.
The Change project arose in our minds during the 2020 pandemic: to sublimate the memory of those songs that helped change the world, to revisit those turning points in the history of societies, those moments of revolution and resistance, through the prism of our dreams and fears today.
