The project „Aktion Rheinland“, which values the resistance fighters who defended the city of Düsseldorf from total destruction, will commemorate its 70th year of existence this spring.
The city of Düsseldorf as well as the police authorities have been committing themselves for many years to insure that this piece of city-history will stay in the minds of the citizens and that the killed will be kept in honourable memory.
Especially young people have very little knowledge about those past occurances. In order o reach this group, the idea was born of bringing the contents of this historical event over to them through music.
On occasion of the 70th anniversary on April 16 / 2015, it has been planned to publish a CD Sampler under the title „Aktion Rheinland“, for which 21 bands in Düsseldorf contributed a song on this topic.
We are very happy, that Sol Elèctrico was able to contribute a song especially written for this project along with many newcomers and well known artists such as „Die Toten Hosen“.
The produced CD will be delivered to Schools in Düsseldorf without any charge. Besides, there is a live-concert being planned on the 17th of april 2015.
We will be keeping you informed.
Anika and Georg
