Venezuela: Revolution from the Inside Out is a voyage into Latin America's most exciting experiment of the new millennium, exploring the history and projects of the Bolivarian Revolution through interviews with a range of its participants, from academics to farm workers and those living in the margins of Caracas. This introduction to the revolucion bonita (pretty revolution) offers in-depth interviews, unforgettable images and a lively soundtrack that will open new vistas onto this hopeful human project.
Testimony, simultaneously published in Switzerland, contains the text of Callahan's work from five CDs with the Looters (Island and Monster Records) and two CDs with The Wild Bouquet (COD Records.)
The book also includes 40 full color reproductions of paintings by the Swiss artist Mariann Müller. The artwork was created in response to the Callahan's lyrics and the two media together combine to create a stunning book.
Well-known singer and songwriter Mat Callahan's lyrics could be said to be as insightful for our time as The Message by Grandmaster Flash was in the late 1970s. Across the Border, recorded when Callahan was lead singer for the Looters, has been broadcast on television, from MTV in the United States and Europe, to Cuban television in Havana.
A companion CD, also entitled Testimony, has been released by COD Music. It contains 15 songs selected from the 7 previous albums.
