Glass Pages by Marwan 

Why Marwan?

He’s the pioneer of urban poets and Madrid is their city and the protagonist of one of their most famous songs.Google music, poetry, social networking and the 21st century. The result is Marwan. Singer-songwriter and standard-bearer of the new Spanish poetry, he was already in our hostel to present his poetry book `The unstoppable loves’.

Who's Marwan?

Marwan was born on March 5, 1979 as the result of the love of a Palestinian and a Spanish woman. At the age of 15 he bought a guitar to play music, inspired by the singer-songwriters of the 70s and 90s. He has reaped unsuspected successes in theatres all over Spain and half the world, and what about his music and poems? Without fully unraveling the mystery of this magic, the singer-songwriter ventures into a hypothesis: “When people identify with what you sing, the personal becomes the universal”.Word of mouth and social networks have also been his great allies. He is the author of the successful poetry books ‘Notes on my passage through the winter’, ‘The sad story of your body over mine’ and ‘All my futures are with you’, was placed number one in the list of best sellers in our country and Mexico.
