Original title

Canto a la libertad

At a decisive moment in Spain's history, José Antonio Labordeta composed this hymn to freedom.

In this song, José Labordeta, the singer-songwriter, writer and activist from Aragon, asks how to build a better world, at the precise time in which the death of Franco opened the doors in Spain towards new horizons of freedom. Some of the themes addressed in the song were peace, equality, justice and collective effort, in a deeply utopian discourse.
For these reasons, 'Canto a la libertad' ('Song to freedom') takes its place alongside other songs such as Raimón's 'Al Vent' and Lluís Llach's 'L’estaca'. The death of José Labordeta in 2010 led to the emergence of a popular movement to make this song the official hymn of Aragon.
