Karidadeko Benta

Karidadeko Benta was an old inn located at a crossroads, in which the region’s best known bertsolaris (improvisers of sung oral literature) used to meet to drink and carouse. The revellers included some of the greatest figures of the time, who later went down in the annals of history. Oh to have been at that inn, even for only one night, among songs and barrels of cider!!
This is where the group Karidadeko Benta gets it name, in an attempt to evoke that atmosphere of music and festivities. As in the old inn, this group is also located at a crossroads. Karidadeko Benta combined some of the oldest known melodies and verses with music from other cultures and a wide range of genres. The union between ancient tradition and the incorporation new sounds is a match made in heaven.
With instrumentation in the style of an orchestra from a multicultural neighbourhood, which contains everything but the kitchen sink, the group transmits the liveliness and freshness that characterises nomadic peoples. The songs evoke feline scenes or submerge us in Balkan, flamenco or oriental atmospheres, without ever leaving the Basque Country.
