Benito Lertxundi’s songs are woven with the thread of freedom. He has dedicated a lifetime to singing with Freedom as his guide. He blazed a trail in the dark days, and his desire for creating and singing remains unquenched more than half a century later. The bard from Orio, like a shoot on a tree, is continuously regenerating the seed.

A self-taught singer-songwriter with a voracious spirit, far-removed from fads, standards, and orthodoxy. After seventeen albums (some of which were double LPs), he is still writing new songs. Anthems from the Basque-speaking world will coexist with brand new songs in this concert.

He will sing these songs live with a new set of friends; songs that speak to us about the need to relearn or about the liberating onslaught of oppressed peoples. They frequently use the poetic imagery of Argentine Jorge Bucay and Fernando Pessoa. Or his most recent, in which he composed music for texts by bertsolari Jon Maia and writer Paco Aristi.
