Urepele – High mountain sheepherding

Recorded on a hilltop near Urepele. Jon, a young shepherd who works using the ancient techniques of traditional shepherding invites us to accompany him at the end of his day. In this case, we hear the entry of a flock of sheep guided by Jon’s voice who is accompanied by another young shepherd and his dog. Insted he doesn’t speak basque, the young colleague follows Jon’s rules (in basque) in order to teach the dog. The recording includes cowbells, sheep sounds, shepherd’s loud orders, and rain.
