Congratulations, Núria Feliu!

Today, 21 September, singer Núria Feliu is celebrating her 80th birthday. During her career of over 55 years she became widely liked not only for her performance of Catalan popular songs, boleros and music hall songs, but also for the popularization of American successes of country and jazz compositions.

Her popularity is largely due to the fact that she always sang in Catalan: ‘I wanted to prove that in Catalan you have and can sing all kinds of musical genres.’ Núria has always been very committed to Catalonia: ‘Singing was an excuse, actually. An excuse to be able to support the people and get to know my country.’

In this video she renders the Jacques Brel’s chanson El clar país (Le Plat Pays) during the concert on the occasion of her 70th birthday and a career of 50 years.
