MICE and Aitor Etxebarria to represent the Basque music industry at Primavera Pro
Euskara. Kultura. Mundura.
Primavera Pro is an annual gathering of creators working in the music industry. Basque. Music. will take part this year for the first time, organising a ‘window’ to Basque music. The Basque. Music. is a joint initiative promoted by Musika Bulegoa, the Etxepare Basque Institute and Euskadiko Soinuak (Cultural Promotion – Basque Government). MICE and Aitor Etxebarria will give concerts as part of the Showcase held at Barcelona’s Centre de Cultura Contemporània (CCCB).
Aitor Etxebarria, aka ´El_txef_a´, is back with a new album. The creator of the original soundtrack for the documentary ´Markak´ and the series ´Hondar ahoak´ brings us a new album. ´Nihilism part 1´ is a collection of nine songs that take us on an art-rock journey filled with tension, tranquility and darkness.
In 2005 Miren Narbaiza joined forces with Ander Mujika to create Napoka Iria. The band released three records, ´Napoka Iria´ (self-produced, 2006), ´Lehertarazi edifizioakk´ (Bonberenea ekintzak, 2011) and ´Arnasten ikasi berriz´ (Bonberenea ekintzak, 2013). In 2017 band broke up and Miren started a new solo project under the alias ‘Mice’. That same year, she released her first album, titled ´MICE´. In 2019 MICE released her second solo project, a four-song EP called ´Zilar Printzak´.
Primavera Pro is an invitation to innovation and new challenges in the world of music. The location is a strategically important hub of cultural exchange between Europe, North America and Latin America. Primavera Pro has become a space for understanding the present and future of the music industry.
