Gerard Quintana (Spain)

This week featuring Spain

GERARD QUINTANA

is a Catalan singer, songwriter, poet, writer, actor, and radio and TV personality. He came to prominence in 1986-2001 as the lead singer of the Catalan rock/pop group “Sopa de Cabra”.  Since the dissolution of the band in 2001, he has pursued a very successful solo career.  Quintana is a very articulate and charismatic speaker, and has become a well-known figure in Catalan culture quite apart from his musicianship. In recent years he has not hesitated to express his personal political and ideological views, including his support for Catalan independence.
