Read in Catalan

The American singer-songwriter Joan Baez has just visited Catalan Parliament Speaker, Carme Forcadell, this Friday, in the prison of Mas d'Enric, as advanced.

Baez performed this Thursday at the Jardins de Terramar Festival as part of her farewell tour Fare thee well ... Tour 2019. She will be saying her farewells to the Catalan public this summer, on Saturday, with a now sold out concert at the Porta Ferrada festival in Sant Feliu de Guíxols (Baix Empordà).

In the Sitges concert this Thursday, Baez invited Mario Muñoz to the stage to interpret the theme Als teus ulls, the Catalan version of the original theme of Peter Gabriel In your eyes, jointly versioned by Peter Gabriel himself with Joan Baez, Lluís Llach and Gemma Humet.

Joan Baez has repeatedly expressed her support for the political prisoners and the exiles. In early July, in a concert she gave in Ghent (Belgium), she dedicated Catalan folk song  Nightingale  to President in exile Carles Puigdemont, and at Cap Roig Festival last year, she dedicated the theme Més Lluny (Further away) by Lluís Llach to the political prisoners .

In fact, she has again confirmed her positioning in a telephone conversation with EFE, when the singer was again categorical about the Catalan leaders who have now been nearly two years in preventive prison "Yes, I continue to think that there are political prisoners in Spain".
