José Antonio Labordeta Subías (Zaragoza, Aragon, Spain; 10 March 1935 – Zaragoza, Aragon, Spain; 19 September 2010[1]), described by The Gran Enciclopedia Aragonesa 2000 (Great Aragonese Encyclopedia) as “The most important Aragonese singer-songwriter”, began singing in an attempt to give more relevance to his poetry. His songs are well-known and beloved anthems in Aragón. Poetic songs such as “Aragón”, “Canto a la Libertad” (Song for Freedom) or “Me dicen que no quieres” (They tell me you don’t want to) were also sung all around the Iberian Peninsula.

He was also the founder of the Andalán newspaper, which was very influential during the 1970s. From 2000 until retiring in 2008, he represented Zaragoza in the Spanish Congress for Chunta Aragonesista (Aragonese Union), an Aragonese political party.[2]<
