The Aquitaine.eus Fall program kicks off!
Euskara. Kultura. Mundura.
The Aquitaine.eus project, created in March 2016 by the Euroregion Aquitaine-Euskadi -composed by the Basque Government and the Région Aquitaine-Nouvelle-, the Etxepare Basque Institute and Euskal Kultur Erakundea-Institut Culturel Basque moves ahead. The program aims to foster the presence of Basque artists from both sides of the border at festivals and events in Aquitaine and to promote relations and cross-border cooperation between creators and agents of Aquitaine and Euskadi, and keeps working on these objectives.
The Fall program includes a large presence of Basque music. On November 4 at 7:00 pm, Iñaki Salvador Trio will offer a concert in the famous cultural center Le Rocher de Palmer, in the outskirts of Bordeaux. The very same day at 6:30 pm, the center will open an exhibition about the first 50 years of the Donostia Jazzaldia. This exhibition will be open until 25 November and will display the posters of those 50 years of the famous International Jazz Festival of Donostia-San Sebastián.
On the other hand, also in Le Rocher de Palmer, the txistulari of Zestoa Garikoitz Mendizabal and the accordionist from Ordizia Aitor Furundarena will offer a traditional Basque music workshop on 22 and 23 of November. On November 23 at 8:00 pm they will also perform a concert based on their project Bi Poliedro.
This Aquitaine.eus Fall program will also pay attention to the Basque dance: from November 8 to December 10 the Mediateka in Lons (Bearne) will host the multimedia exhibition SOKA, that will be shown out of the Basque Country for the first time. The exhibition, created with the participation of Euskal Kultur Erakundea, the Provincial Council of Gipuzkoa and DSS2016, is presented in four languages –Basque,French, Spanish and English-, and in the months to come will keep travelling within the Aquitaine.eus project.
