desperta ferro! Oi! Almogàvers were Catalan warriors from the Middle age who were feared and recognized for their efficiency in combat. Before the battle they hit the iron of their swords against the stones and they shout “Desperta Ferro” (Wake up Iron), making sparks. The same courage and strength wants to be conveyed by Desperta Ferro, a political-musical project born in 1999, when a group of friends from Sabadell (Barcelona) decided to make a band to claim the independence and the unity of the Catalan Countries, the socialist revolution and the antifascism.
