Artist: ANJE DUHALDE
Song: Gure lekukotasuna
Anje Duhalde (Arrangoitze-1950) belongs
to a special breed of musicians and singers.
He started alone back in the early 1970’s and
is an essential piece in understanding the
development of Basque folk and rock music,
a living bridge between folk music and rock
This live recording offering songs that span
his 40 plus years of composing and singing,
has two distinct parts: an electrical part and
an acoustic part. Supplementing his selfcomposed
songs, and other more traditional
tunes, are several cover songs including one
by John Hiatt, an American musician that
Duhalde holds in high esteem.
The song “Gure lekukotasuna” belongs to
his early Errobi, the Basque rock pioneer
group of mid 1970’s, which pioneered Anje
Duhalde Ducau with Mixel Ducau.
