Amorante (Basque Country/Spain)
“Welcome to the world of lovers.”
You are invited to join the Basque ethnomusicologist and multi-instrumentalist Iban Urizar on his intensively sensual voyage through music traditions. His folk stories are a reflection of free improvisation. He creates them using looping techniques on various instruments – from guitar and ukulele to trumpet and special accordions, which are further transformed with various effects. His music, a juncture where heritage, oriental influences and modern approaches to flamenco meet, is presented in a respectful, organic way. The lyrics in Basque translate its essence directly to the listener and offer universal messages.
