• ‘Forward thinking welsh music industry showcase’

  • Herri Arte Eskola – ‘Galestar Konexioa’ (Basque Country)

    ‘Basque Folk Orchestra and Dancers’ by Herri Arte Eskola from Errenteria town (Basque Country) has been carrying out cultural and pedagogical exchanges for 3 years.

    After Galicia and Catalonia, in September 2023 it was Wales’ turn with special guests Gwilym Bowen Rhys (voice and guitar), Patrick Rhimes (violin) and Angharad Harrop (clock and contemporary dance) presenting the work carried out for months at the ‘Atlantikaldia’ festival. This initiative enriches culturally the guest artists, teachers and students of the school, and allows them to learn about other languages, instruments, choreographies, melodies, traditions… from other places as well as making Basque heritage known. In this performance you will hear tunes played with traditional instruments such as alboka (7 people), dultzaina (2), txalaparta (5), trikitixa (6), etc. and traditional Basque and Welsh choreographies (20 dancers) as well as other disciplines such as tap-dance (8) and contemporary dance (5), all with the 3 Welsh special guests.
