Basque-ing Through Song: A Musical Evening with NOKA

Thursday, October 13, 2016, 7pm - 8pm

NOKA is a Basque-American trio from Chino, CA, that focuses on traditional and original songs about Basque culture, identity and gender ( Founded in 1997, we have recorded three collections of songs, which increasingly include songs we have written or arranged ourselves. Our latest compilation, "Bi Ahizpak," ("Two Sisters") is a collaboration with Mikel Markez, a singer-songwriter from the Basque Country with a career spanning over 25 years. Our musical evening will entail a concert of songs from our latest CDs to give the audience a taste of traditional and contemporary Basque and Basque-American music. We will supplement this with a multimedia bilingual presentation about Basque language, culture and history.

Support has been provided by UCR College of Humanities, Arts and Social Sciences (CHASS) and the City of Riverside.
