On May 31th, Madonna kicked off her World Tour along with Basque group Kalakan. According to Euzkalkazeta.com, the pop superstar met the Basque trio during a visit to the Basque Country last summer. She has included a new version of her song “Open Your Heart” in the concert line-up, and it segues into Kalakan’s “Sagarra Jo.”
Last week, Nere Lete, who teaches in the Basque Studies program in the Department of Modern Languages and Literatures at Boise State University, assisted the crew for pop star Madonna’s current tour. The crew contacted Boise’s Basque History Museum interested in purchasing some objects and requested help with the translation of a few Basque words.
