Video Title:
Biotzetik Basque Choir at the 2016 Folklife Festival
Description:
Beautiful landscape, delicious food, and melodious vocals--within this one song, the Basque Boise Choir encapsulates three of the unique features of Basque country. "White Dove" performed at the 2016 Folklife Festival tells of the beauty of the white dove flying in the sky but suggests that it may be more beautiful on the dinner table. Basque country is well known for its singing traditions, which have been maintained as forms of entertainment, prayer, and celebration. Within the Basque-American communities, singing traditions have been sustained through tight-knit choirs such as the Basque Boise Choir, which is made up of a range of first generation Basques to honorary Basque Americans. Videography: Pruitt Allen, Andrea Curran, Josh Davis, Ryan Shank Live Sound Mix: Ed "Guam" Rangel [Catalog No. CFV10856; Copyright 2016 Smithsonian Institution]
