Bidarrai, Lower Navarre. There will be a concert this Sunday in Bidarrai by California Basque Andrea Bidart Oteiza.  Andrea, born in California, in the heart of a family originally from Navarre, on both sides of the Pyrenees, told EuskalKultura.com that she is especially happy and excited for the recital.  “It will be a very special concert for me because my maternal great grandparents were from Bidarrai,” she said.

Andrea Miren Bidart was born in Chino, California the daughter of Mike and Jeanette (Bicary) Bidart.  She grew up in the presence and care of the Basque culture, and especially surrounded by song.  Andrea is one of the three members of the Basque-Californian group, Noka  and has also recorded on her own.  Last year, she recorded Bidart Aita-Alabak, along with her father, a collection of Basque songs that she grew up with, and continue to be part of the “hit parade” at gatherings of friends and family at the Bidart residence.

Andrea Bidart will sing this Sunday, July 14th at 5pm in Bidarrai accompanied by Mikel Markez on the guitar and vocals, and Julen Alonso on the trikitixa.  Don’t miss out!
