The members of Oskorri are bidding farewell to their loyal fans with a concert tour this autumn. Oskorri is closing this chapter of its musical activity, after almost 45 years of uninterrupted dedication.
Since their beginnings, singing almost in secret, defying the Dictatorship, with the encouragement of the poet Gabriel Aresti, brimming with commitment and demands, Oskorri has travelled millions of miles, clocked up hours and hours on the road, and in searches and rehearsals that led to over 3,000 concerts and close to 500 songs recorded.
An intense and extensive musical achievement. Committed to quality, finesse and modernity to delve into the world of traditional sound and literature. Created and recreated without prejudice and with all manner of cross-contamination from pop, rock, jazz… honest music, played live, on working days and holidays, in the squares of towns and villages.
Oskorri is part of the soundtrack to the lives of several Basque generations. From the old glories of late Francoism to the children of today, who grow up with their children’s songs…
With so many beautiful memories, and friends old and new, Oskorri is bidding a fond farewell.
