Mundaka – Atorrak: Iji taja

In the Carnival or Aratusteak of Mundaka, the Atorrak and the Lamiak are the main characters of the party. This recording was made at carnival saturday noon, when a group of about 100 men, dressed with the typical white dress walks on the streets singing the carnival songbook. On the recording, we can listen a song called Iji Taja (1995).
Iji taja, atorrak gaur Mundakan,
berdiñik ez, da mundu zabalean.
Gazte ta zar, marrau jantzi gura dogu,
denok aratustetan.
Hator neskato aratuzte egunean
Atorrak gabiltz hemen goiko kalean,
Goizetik kanta, iluntzez dantza,
Gero zirria gauerantza
