The soundtrack for this I recorded late one night from the balcony of our apartment. For two months we've lived on the second floor above 'La Plaza de Muzica' in the Basque town of Zarautz. On this night, apparently, a group of German vocalists was visiting for a kind of reunion. Drinks in hand, waiting for others to arrive, a group gathered beneath the open rotunda in the middle of the square to sing. I don't know how long I listened, transfixed, before I thought to try and record the music. I was greedy to listen...
At 1:19 you hear their surprised cheer at the arrival of another friend.
Their impromptu singing was the best that came out of La Plaza de Muzica during our time living in the little apartment. My sound recording does little justice to the music just as the video falls short of capturing the Basque Country, but hopefully both hint at the great beauty of this coast and culture.
