Joan Isaac, artistic name of Joan Vilaplana Comín (Esplugues de Llobregat, 1953), composer and interpreter in the Catalan language, poet and musician, is one of the great voices of the Catalan author song.

Pere Camps, director of the music festival BarnaSants (Cançó d'autor), from this work by Joan Isaac says:
The revolts of '68, led mainly by young people, especially university students, were the closest thing to a global insurrection since the end of World War II. Of these revolts, surely the most iconic were the so-called Prague Spring or the May of France, but, to a lesser or greater intensity, they exploded all over the planet: from the great demonstrations against the Vietnam War to the massacre in the square from Tlatelolco in Mexico, passing through anti-Franco university demonstrations. It could even be considered part of this wave of rebellion against the status quo the no less famous Italian hot autumn of 1969. They were anti-authoritarian mobilizations, assemblies, with a strong self-management content, which put into question not only the structures of political and social representation prevailing, but also, and very especially, the dominant moral, the value system of conservatism. A questioning that was always made proposing, and practicing, alternative values, which would be the seed of personal liberation, the change of mentality. Pacifism, environmentalism, and especially feminism, came to the forefront and since then they would form an inseparable part of any progressive political proposal. These revolts had and inspire an essential soundtrack. They are the songs of the revolts of '68.
