Badok: Basque music online

argazki200Jose Antonio Alcayaga III just posted this link on Facebook and it seemed like a great one to share.  Badok has a relatively large selection of Basque music available for online listening and I understand that songs can be downloaded in mp3 format.

This seems like a great way to explore Basque music.  It looks like there is a large range of styles, from folk like Oskorri to metal bands such as Su Ta Gar.  And the artists seem to span a range of time, including classics from Kortatu.  Not everything is on here, as I don’t see any Negu Gorriak for example, but there is still a large number of groups to explore.

Thanks for sharing Jose!

  1. Milesker Jose eta Blas ere.
    Bikaina da abesti batzuk aurkitu horrela webgunea beran. Erraz erraza dago erabiltzea.
    Laketzen nau oso; baliagarri izango da niretzat euskara ikasteko.
    Ez adiorik

  2. Aupa Blas,

    Hamabost-edo urte dira, Internet jaioberri hartatik osteratxoa egiten nenbilela, zure webgunea ikusi eta gabon kanta batzuk bidali nizkizula (Olentzero, eta abar).

    (Gogoan daukat ere, Espainiako ABC egunkariarekin izandako ika-mika hura, eta basque-l-en zegoen giroa. Une latzak izan ziren, baina argi geratu zen bakoitzaren jokabidea zein zen.)

    Poz handia hartu dut [kantek-eta] bertan jarraitzen dutela ikusteak. Bitarte honetan, ikasketak amaitu dituzu, ezkondu egin zara, familia osatzen zabiltza (antza)… eta denbora lortu duzu gurera (EHra) etortzeko.

    Segi horrela! … beste 15 urtean behintzat!

    Unai.

  3. Eskerrik asko, unai. I did not understand all you wrote (my Euskara is not very good), but I think I got the general sentiment and I greatly appreciate the kind words.

  4. No problem, Blas. Yesterday, as I was browsing through your website, I remembered that I sent you some Christmas carols, 15-or-so years ago. And they’re still there!
    Looking back at those times, the ABC [Spanish newspaper] “controversy”, the Basque-l posts… now it all appears so distant… but then, it was a bit of a hard time.
    In short, I’m glad to “see” you again, and that you stick to your Basque roots.
    Carry on!

    Unai.
