Artitsas en Ruta - Airu
Euskara. Kultura. Mundura.
Airu, Neomak and Kulto Kultibo have been chosen to take part in the first round in 2023 of the concert series ´Artistas en Ruta´ (Artists on the Road), organised by AIE.
Airu will perform in Barcelona on May 27th at Sala Taro.
‘Artistas en Ruta’ was created to introduce audiences to new talent. So far, well-known groups and solo artists have taken part in the programme, including Anita Parker, Ekiza, La Furia, Nøgen, Kepa Junkera, Dupla, and Idoia. The concert series is supported by the Etxepare Basque Institute.
AIRU began as a project by composer Irune Vega, with collaboration from Erik González, Mikel Izarra and Patricia Echanove. Based in Bilbao, the band explores the hidden meaning behind language. A minimalist sound of sober riffs, sentimentality, mournful melodies and dark vocals with quotes from literature and film.
