Guillem d’Efak. L’ànima negra de l’illa

Who was Guillem d’Efak? During the sixties, he became known as “the black who sang in Catalan”, an unusual rarity within the cultural outlook. Born in Equatorial Guinea, raised in Mallorca, poet, bohemian, scrounger… A fascinating figure on which the playwright Pep Tosar wants to make a play, for this reason he will travel to Mallorca to interview those who knew him best.
