Kalakan + Euskadiko Orkestra

The central theme of this new project involving collaboration between the Basque National Orchestra and Kalakan is traditional Basque music. The main aim of the project is to merge Kalakan’s efforts to breathe new life into Basque folklore with the classical world.

The composer Jagoba Astiazaran has taken on the task of translating several songs previously published by the trio into orchestral language, including Iruten ari nuzu and Kantuz, both well-known Basque songs. Several of the traditional instruments that the Kalakan group uses habitually play a major role in the album. These include the txalaparta, the txirula and the alboka, all instruments that have been combined with the rest of the instrumental sections of the orchestra.

In addition, several lyrics by bertsolaris (traditional Basque singers) Xaldador and Bilintx are included in the recording, in pieces that have been created expressly for this project, as well as a completely different version of Txoria Txori by Mikel Laboa and Joxean Artze.
