otsagi_harrera

Recorded in Otsagabia during the festive day of Olentzero, a recovered tradition in the village. Despite the rain, txistularis, “joaldunak” fanfare members, neighbors and visitors went the top of the village to welcome Olentzero and Mari Domingi, who came from the mountains. Recorded at the moment when they turn off the lights of the town and the Olentzero and Mari Domingi appears from the darkness among screams, irrintzis and the sound of txalaparta.
