Europa bat-batean. Territorio Archivo Activation 11: Itineraries for the oral culture

25 September, 2015 - 26 September, 2015

On 25th, 26th September we are organizing, along with Fundación Sierra Pambley, Donostia/San Sebastián Capital Europea de la Cultura 2016 and Mintzola Fundazioa, two performances of improvised singing with singers from the Canary Islands, Galician and Basque Country.

They will take place at FCAYC (Cerezales del Condado, León) and at Fundación Sierra Pambley (León). They are a new activation for the public of our project Territorio Archivo (Further information on Territorio Archivo).

Besides, this is the first step of the project EUROPA BAT-BATEAN, which wants to make known a variety of traditions of improvised singing. It will take place in Donostia/San Sebastián, from 9th to 16th July 2016, during the European Capital of Culture.

It will not be the first time that the project Territorio Archivo is activated for the public through oral improvisation: during the activities developed at FGSR we all had the opportunity to hear how a Basque bertsolari and two troubadours from La Alpujarra (South Spain) sang spontaneous verses about some images of the archive.

During next weekend, we are going to be accompanied by singers from Canary Islands, Galicia and two bertsolaris, Ane Labaka and Maialen Lujanbio (2009 second best at Bertsolari Txapelketa Nagusia).
