We can´t wait to get back in the woods for Basoka 2016 on Friday 20th May!

Basoka II will be taking place in the Miramon Woods, like last year, but we´re mixing things up this year by including plenty of new collaborations and a special guest. We are collaborating with the Coro Easo for some new songs and new formats; what´s more, the architecture students from the UPV will be taking part in the festival and will be working on the stage and the surroundings to make the most of the woodland setting.

The collaboration with Easo Araoz Gazte will be different to last year´s one as this year Iker Lauroba is going to present his new collaboration with a choir of young children. Luke Armstrong will also be performing with a choir of teenagers in the format which Luke and the choir have been working on and developing since the success of the last edition of Basoka in 2015.

This year we have a special guest, Adam Giles Levy, a musician from London, who is now based in Bilbao. Adam, who defines his music as contemporary folk, clearly has a number of different influences and his music is quite something. He´s both an impressive guitarist and a great singer, with hints of blues, pop, folk and experimental guitar tricks which bring Preston Reed to mind. Here´s a video of him playing:

See you in the woods on Friday!
