Artist: BENITO LERTXUNDI
Album: Oroimenaren Oraina
Song: Laket dut
The work of composer and singer Benito
Lertxundi (Orio-1942) is one of the most
fascinating artistic proposals and influential
of our culture. The aesthetically pleasing
design, the upscale music and poetry, is distilled
into these songs making him one of the
most relevant figures of Basque music.
The new album “Oroimenaren oraina” (This
from memory), is a refined creative work of
artistic and sensual depth where Lertxundi
presents ten emotional songs the result of a
rewarding creative life of fifty years in music.
The song “Laket dut” (It pleases me), features
the accompaning voice of his wife
Olatz Zugasti, is a hymn to the Orio estuary
(alongside where they live) and the memories
that are hidden there.
