Aamamata is the song that Death sings every day in the Mediterranean Sea, which has become a desolate pit for human lives.
‘Aurora’ is dedicated to all of those who have fallen by executions and political persecution during the fascist coup in Spain in 1936, and are still missing, buried in hundreds of unmarked mass graves but is especially dedicated to Aurora Picornell, a freedom fighter who stood up for liberty and civil rights, and was executed on January 5th, 1937.
More than 80 years after her death, her body has not yet been found.
