Korrontzi is a traditional party of Basque music & dance with a vanguard vision.
The band was formed by Agus Barandiaran. He wanted to give the music of the Basque Country a contemporary sound. The foundation of basque music is the trikitixa–the Basque diatonic accordion and other ethnic instruments like txalaparta or alboka, With the inclusion of more modern instrumentation–mandolin, guitar, upright bass and percussion–they have brought the music into the 21st century.
It’s lively, sensuous, and ultimately irresistible. They will bring us the colours & landscapes of the Basque Country.
