  • Album bidaia HITZA

    HITZA translates the idea of voyage by delving into melodies and rythyms of the Basque provinces (banako, zortziko, fandango...) while incorporating elements of other world cultures : Morocco, the Balkans, the Middle East and Cajun Blues. The coupling of the Hurdy-Gurdy with the alboka (Basque hornpipe) give a spicy flavor to the repertoire supported by acoustic guitar and bamboo clarinet. Percussion like Tablas, Cajon, Darbouka and Zarb are liberally used throughout the recording.
