Do you know the Basque-American band Amerikanuak?
My friend Hella Basque told me about Amerikanuak new website (amerikanuak.com) and upcoming CD, so I thought I’d pass the information along.
Although each of the members of the band are musicians in their own right and each has his or her own history of how they became involved with Basque music, the basis for this group of friends getting together to play music and help maintain the Basque culture here in the United States began back in 1989 when the Basque Cultural Center in South San Francisco decided to present a traditional Basque musical play called a “Pastorala” or “Pastorale”.
Band Members: Jean Flesher and Rene Caballero, Christian and Daniel Iribarren, JP Etchechury, Jean Jules Flesher, Michelle Iturriria, John Ehlis and Pierre Igoa.
For more information about the band, visit their website or Facebook page.
