The bertsolari is the improviser of verse sung in the Basque language, Euskara. This oral tradition has managed to evolve and adapt to the times connecting with the younger generation, bringing together ten thousand people at the final of the last championship. An austerely aesthetic art that surprises in this era of spectacle and special effects.
BERTSOLARI is a journey through improvised poetry, silence, and art laid bare.
