05/24/2015

The video shows a group of schoolchildren of the Welsh village of Llanfairpwll singing which is probably the best known song of the popular Basque band Ken Zazpi (see the original version). Iñaki Pierola a Basque who did an internship as a teacher in that town in 2011 directed it. His students were interested about the Basques and their language and  culture, so he decided to teach them the song. They did not know Basque, but this was no obstacle to prepare everything in two weeks. Theyu are children of 9-11 years old, accompanied on the guitar by Iñaki himself, on piano by another teacher and with another student as drummer. Zorionak, congratulations to all of them!
