The Nawrockis play La Makhnovtchina (The Makhnovists)
/ Навроцькі грають «Махновщина»

(YouTube: French with English subtitles)

Photo: The Nawrockis play La Makhnovtchina, shows a man and woman playing stringed instruments in a snowy wooded setting.

A song about southeastern Ukrainian history. Over 100 years ago The Makhnovists (La Makhnovtchina) fought for freedom & against all tyrants in Ukraine. The Nawrockis offer this song in solidarity with the working & poor people of Ukraine & worldwide who want peace & bread & no more bloody wars over who will rule them. Nestor Makhno (1888–1934) was a southeastern Ukrainian anarchist peasant who fought for a society “without masters or slaves, with neither rich nor poor.”
