Known as the best Basque choir ever, Oldarra spreads the traditional songs and culture of the Basque Country from over 70 years now.
Settled in Biarritz and led by Iñaki Urtizberea, the choir performs in many local and international stages, extracting from its song books profane or holy Basque songs, but also playing classical pieces and melodies from around the world.
Created by Basque refugies, after the Spanish civil war, OLDARRA, from the start, has been developped in the heart of Biarritz Basque culture, and is issued from a centenary patrimony.
Singing and dancing has enabled us to perpetuate united spirit and the solidarity that animated the founders of the group.
It performs polyphonic pieces a capella, either religious or profane. At the beginning, only in Basque language, but today pieces from all over the world are part of the concerts.
