It’s a tour that was forged in the Diaspora, since Anne Etchegoyen, from Lower Navarre, came into contact with the world of Argentinean music during a tour of Basque clubs in that country. Now two icons of Argentinean music, María Volonté and Mavi Díaz, will travel to Europe to give three concerts with Anne where tango will be fused with Basque folk and rock music. This Tuesday they will perform in Bayonne, Thursday the 6th in Bordeaux and on Saturday the 8th in Burgos.

Donostia-San Sebastian.  The singer from Behe-Nafarroa (Lower Navarre), Anne Etchegoyen, will host two of Argentina’s music icons, María Volonté and  Mavi Díaz, next week.  Together the three composers will put on a show that combines Basque music, tango, folk music from Argentina and rock.
