Catalan Concert and workshop posterValencian singer, songwriter, and activist Pau Alabajos will be playing his guitar in a live performance and workshop. The event will cover the history of the Nova Cançó, an artistic movement that promoted Catalan music and protested against Franco’s dictatorship in the 1960s and early 1970s, with songs from its main artists (e.g., Al Vent by Raimon, L’Estaca by Lluís Llach, Què volen aquesta gent by Maria del Mar Bonet, M’aclame a tu by Ovidi Montllor).

Pau will cover the end of the dictatorship and the transition, and illustrate Catalonia's history from a political, social and cultural perspective. There will be a Q&A to follow.

The event is free and open to the public.

Wednesday, November 28, 5:30-7:00 p.m. in Hellems 145

We look forward to seeing many of you there!
