Viña del Mar, Chile. class="Paragraph SCXW267297103 BCX0" paraeid="{d440e25f-c4a8-495e-9bb1-56a132444078}{167}" paraid="658484940" style="color: windowtext; background-color: transparent; margin: 0px; padding: 0px; user-select: text; -webkit-user-drag: none; -webkit-tap-highlight-color: transparent; overflow-wrap: break-word; vertical-align: baseline;">In these days of seclusion, we should stay, as much as possible, at home to take care of ourselves and those around us. This pause in our daily lives allows us to spend more time enjoying or cultivating those artistic expressions, music, film, some have gone back to painting, what we have at our fingertips that we often don’t get to enjoy in our hectic daily life. Today we are sharing this contribution with our readers, a song that came to us from Viña del Mar-Valparaíso. It is called “Euskera,” music and lyrics by Atacama singer-songwriter Néstor Aguirre.


“Euskera,” was presented at Semana Vasca 2018 in Valparaiso by Nestor Aguirre himself, accompanied by Maritxu Andonaegui and Juan Manuel Olaechea, recorded in this video that we provide here.

Musicians, Aguirre, Andonaegui and Olaechea often accompany cultural activities at the Eusko Etxea in Viña del Mar-Valparaíso; Maritxu Andonaegui also represented the club in the Euskara Munduan program that began in San Nicolas, Argentina in January. Zorionak eta on egin! (congrats and bon appetit)
