Arrecifes, Argentina. Mariana Dominé Irigoyen and Adrián Charras, both from Arrecifes are working on a new cultural-musical project. The show will consist of a series of songs and stories about Basque immigrants that came to Argentina from any one of the seven Basque provinces. “The base of the project consists converting into songs real stories that talk about the motives for immigration, the place of origin, and the arrival, work history, family history…,” Domine told EuskalKultur.eus and added that to this end, they are seeking letters, and especially those sent from Basques in Argentina back to Euskal Herria.
Anyone who would like to share their family history with Mariana, who may have letters or some other elements that allow us to recover what they thought, what they felt or how those who came to Argentina from the Basque Country lived are asked to please email her email@example.com. Your story may become part of the show, always preserving the identity of its protagonists.
These stories “sung and told,” bring together two renowned musicians from the Basque Diaspora, both members of the Euskaldunak Denak Bat Basque Club in Arrecifes, and the popular group, Maral. Mariana Domine and Adrian Charras are currently working on the compilation of the stories, and on the reading, synthesis and script.
