The upcoming edition of BIME Bogotá will be held from 8 to 11 May 2024. Basque musician Izaro will take part in the showcase organised by BASQUE. MUSIC.

The International Music Industry Conference, which began twelve years ago in Bilbao, will gather at its South American headquarters for the third year in a row from 8-11 May.

The platform for the internationalisation of music in the Basque Country, promoted by The Musika Bulegoa (Basque Music Office), the Etxepare Basque Institute and the Basque Government, will once again be at BIME in Bogotá, Colombia, to build artistic and professional bridges between Latin America and the Basque Country.

Izaro will present ‘Cerodenero’, her latest álbum, in Bogotá on 9 May (17:00, Plazoleta Stage). Following its launch at the 2023 Durangoko Azoka Fair, Cerodenero has continued to delight audiences.

On 10 May, Izaro will participate together with musicians from Cuba, Colombia and Argentina in the round table ´Art and method: how to make great songs´.

Finally, on 11 May, he will spend an artistic stay with the Peruvian singer Milena Warthon.
