15a Entrega Anual del Latin GRAMMY - 86


It's a chain. We learned from the ones who came before us,
and others learned from us. None of this is generated on its own.
Calling you a "protest singer" would be inaccurate, but
the presence of your music - and your own presence
- are closely linked to the struggle for freedom and
democracy in Latin America.
The term "protest song" was born in the '60s to describe songs
that denounced the intervention of the U.S. army in the Vietnam
war, and later included any song that portrayed negative aspects
of society and urged people to fight them. In my songs, just like in
my own life, it has been impossible for me to tiptoe around an issue
while looking away. What's reflected in my music is the things that I
see. For some, it may be protest. For others, a form of solace.

You have composed music in a variety of formats:
ballads, bolero, salsa, pasodoble, saeta, huapango,
foxtrot, tango... Do you pick the music, the lyrics pick
the music, or the music picks the lyrics instead?
I don't know. I do what I can.

Uno de los amigos más leales de Joan Manuel ... Brams.
One of Joan Manuel's most loyal friends ... Brams.
Um dos amigos mais fiéis de Joan Manuel ... Brams.
admiramos y nos reímos juntos. Y, sobre todo, tenemos la fortuna de que
nuestras mujeres se llevan bien
y la venta de armas de fuego en España está severamente restringida.
Es fama que usted es un trabajador incansable.
Próximamente aparecerá un nuevo trabajo suyo (Antología
desordenada) en el que interpreta 50 canciones con la
participación de 31 artistas amigos suyos. ¿Tiene nuevos
planes para cuando acabe la gira que lanzará el disco?
Está previsto que la Antología desordenada aparezca en los últimos
meses de 2014 y la gira correspondiente ocupará el año 2015,
cuando se cumplen mis 50 años de escenarios. No tengo planes más
allá. Espero que la salud, las ilusiones y el apoyo de la gente me los
proporcionen.
Sus hijos ejercen o estudiaron oficios tales como técnico en
video, química farmacéutica, artista de teatro, periodista...
¿Le habría gustado tener un hijo músico?
Todos lo son, mejores o peores, pero todos lo son.
¿La vida comienza a los setenta?
En lo que a mí se refiere, lo que me queda de ella, sí.

15th ANNUAL LATIN GRAMMY AWARDS®

What composers have you admired and which ones had
an influence on you? We're interested in the presence of
Latin American songwriters in your taste.
Sometimes a question is easy, but with a very long answer - as
is the case here. I have the feeling that the list of writers, composers
and poets who have influenced my work is immense. Many of them
are Latin American. I have had the fortune of living in times that
were politically intense and very creative artistically, with friends
who also placed a bet on songs that are in tune with the times.
They have been a great influence.
Do you remember who was the first person to call you
"a Latin American born in Barcelona"?
It was me. I define myself as such since the '70s, when I felt like
one more Latin American exile.
Clearly the market for your songs in Catalan is much
more limited that the one for your Spanish songs. And
yet you have never stopped writing and recording in
Catalan. Is it an affirmation of your homeland?
No, no, it's something as natural as one's nails growing.
The shows you shared with Joaquín Sabina - Dos
Pájaros de un Tiro and Los Pájaros Contraatacan -
were some of the most acclaimed concerts of the past
few years. Are you planning to play together again?
Yes. The fact is that every time we meet, we have fun coming up
with new excuses for touring together. Above all, we're two friends
who love each other and share mutual admiration and laughter.
We also have the good fortune that our wives get along, and that,
in Spain, the sale of firearms is severely restricted.
You have a reputation for working tirelessly. You have
a new record coming out (Antología Desordenada)
where you perform 50 songs with the help of 31 fellow
artists. Do you have any plans following the tour to
promote the new album?
