 すでにこの『祭り』が開かれた時点で発表があったと思うのだが、ソウル・フラワー・ユニオンにとって3年ぶりとなる新しいスタジオ録音アルバム、『カンテ・ディアスポラ』が9月17日に発表される。とはいっても、前作、『ロロサエ・モナムール』以降、さまざまな形で、まるで堰を切るように声を届けていたのがソウル・フラワー・ユニオンだ。『ラヴィエベル〜人生は素晴しい』から『寝顔を見せて』、そして、『海へゆく』という、シングルとは呼べそうもないボリュームを詰め込んだシングルを次々を発表し、その間に彼らにとって初のライヴDVDとなる『ライヴ辺野古』までもが姿を見せている。

 これがメジャー・レーベルだったら、巷にあふれる『宣伝戦略』とも受け取れれても仕方がないんだが、彼らの場合は、それとは全く無縁の「肉声を届ける作業」ではなかったんだろうかと思う。アンマンのパレスチナ難民キャンプでのライヴや辺野古を巡る体験... そこには地べたをはいずりながら必死に生きる人たちが存在し、それをまるで虫けらのように踏む潰す権力者がいる。いうまでもなく、ソウル・フラワー・ユニオンが立っているのは普通に生きる人たちの側。そんな『現場』に身を置いて、全身で世界に向かい合うことから、堰を切ったように歌が生まれているのだ。そして、そこで体験した怒りや喜びや悲しみをはき出すかのような勢いで発表してきたのが、そういったシングルの数々やDVDであり、それを全て集約する形で生まれたのがこの新しいアルバム、『カンテ・ディアスポラ』なんだろう。

 そんな彼らにとって『辺野古』がどれほどの意味を持っているのか... それはその現場、辺野古の浜で、巨大な米軍基地、キャンプ・シュワブの目と鼻の先で開催された昨年のピース・ミュージック・フェスタ辺野古のレポートをチェックしていただければ理解していただけるだろう。そして、それを「本土の人たちにこそ伝えなければいけない」と開催された今回、彼らがステージに登場したときのオーディエンスの熱狂的を忘れることはできないだろう。
