Txoria Txori (Mikel Laboa)

In loving memory of Basque singer and song-writer Mikel Laboa.

.... ... .


  1. We Basques, and I would say the world, has now lost one of its greatest musicians.

    But still, I am really impressed on how a single person can be so influential, with his songs becoming such popular themes, that will persist with certainty many centuries after his death.

    I'm not an artist, not any music fanatic and have not been a follower of Laboa particularly (I was more directly influenced by Punk) but still I am very deeply moved by his departure, as I'm quite sure we all are around here.

  2. Yes Maju, one can not avoid feeling a bit sad with Mikel's departure.
