Tomeu Penya: això som jo


Tomeu Penya: això som jo is the biography of he who is undoubtedly the most popular singer-songwriter in Majorca, a unique and unmistakable personality on the Catalan music scene. The book reviews his life and, above all, his career on stage. The project, however, goes further and takes the figure of the man from Vilafranca as an example of the evolution of the island, of a Majorca that in just a few years has gone from a peasant world to the scandalous irruption of tourism and which has had to take to the streets to defend its territory and language. Tomeu Penya’s voice guides the reader through his story, but he is not alone; the lyrics of his songs and the account of fellow travellers such as the musicians Joan Bibiloni or Tomeu Matamalas, journalists such as Fernando Merino or Paco Flix, collaborators such as La Trinca or friends such as the sportsman Tomàs Jofresa are all found on the pages of this compilation of experiences where they make a contribution.
