Bahía Blanca, Argentina. After ten years, Semana Nacional Vasca returns in 2019 to Bahia Blanca November 4-10. Over the 7 days, but mainly on the weekend, there will be typical activities that will be enjoyed by the local Basques and their non-Basque neighbors. The program will include Basque clubs from all over the country, but also by referents of Basque culture that will cross the pond to be part of the event.
Those attending SNV from Euskadi include musicians and dantzaris like Patxi eta Konpania and trikitilari Xabi Aburruzaga, who will entertain at dances. Also part of the show will be Telmo Esnal and Gari Otamendi who will present the film Dantza and without leaving the area of music, remember that the Chamber Choir from Oñati will also be part of the huge Basque gathering.
The Union Vasca will provide the program of activities in the coming days. In the meantime, after much effort to put prices together during the crisis that the country is currently suffering, the Basque club has published the prices of the vouchers.
