This article seeks to explain the cultural phenomenon of the Catalan nova cançó, as well as its importance in the cultural scene of the 1960s and early 1970s. To this end, we focus our attention on its origin, the factors which gave rise to it, and how it later became such an influential movement in the world of Spanish music, creating a new model of singer-songwriter which would spread throughout the country. Furthermore, we examine the political significance that the cançó would acquire after 1968, as a result of Joan Manuel Serrat's refusal to sing in Spanish in the Eurovision Song Contest, which in turn would highlight the continuation of the regime's censorship of Catalan songs. Lastly, this paper explores the role of this movement in promoting cultural change in Spain during the 1960s and 1970s.
