Zooteek - Basque Products now available in London and the UK through Zooteek June 2016

 

Zootek- Basque Products now available in London and UK through Zooteek June 2016

It is a real pleasure to introduce to you all this new enterprise by a fellow Basque, who is setting up a Basque product importing company. From now on we will be able to have Basque products direct from the UK. To promote this company, an event has been organised for Friday, June 17th. More details about it below.

The public garden at the Calthorpe Project on Grays Inn Road (running between Kings Cross and Holborn) is hosting a Basque food and drink pop-up evening this Friday 17 June from 5.30pm until 11pm.

We would love as many people from the London Basque Society to be there, along with any other people interested in enjoying the different tastes of the Basque Country. The food will include a variety of pintxos - such as Idiazabal cheese croquetas - and lomo and cider-soaked chorizo cooked fresh on the barbecue. Cava, Txakoli and other Basque wines, beers, ciders and juices will all be served.

The event is free to enter and all the ingredients and produce used during the evening are Basque, so it offers an authentic taste of the Basque Country here in central London.

The food and drinks are provided by ZooteeK (run by Imanol, originally from Gipuzkoa), which imports Basque foods to Britain. The website for ZooteeK is www.zooteek.co.uk and to find out more about the Basque pop-up you can follow @ZooteeK or the caterers for the event @milajoelondon on Twitter.

L'ANIMA live performance - Progressive Rock Night at The Hive in London April 2016

 

L'ANIMA live performance - Progressive Rock Night at The Hive in London April 2016

It is not often we get the chance to work with Basque artists based in London, so this next event we are preparing will be somehow special. Thus, the London based band L'ANIMA, with Iban (https://www.youtube.com/user/sanduzelai666) from Iruña as the drummer, will be performing for us at the Hive.

 

http://lanimaofficial.com/

 

Please find below a short bio taken straight from their official website.

L'ANIMA is the brainchild of London based musician Pedro J. Caparros Lopez. It started out as a collaboration between Pedro (Breed 77), and lead singer Andy Mitchell, frontman of the Yardbirds. Both are seasoned musicians, who have toured and recorded extensively, and it was a shared love of Progressive music that initially brought them together.

The line-up was rounded out by some amazing musicians; guitarist Mauro Paderni, bassist Luca Forlani and drummer Iban Sanz, who all brought the songs to life.

 

The sound of the band is a inspiring and thought-provoking blend of progressive rock and spanish guitar stylings.

The result is a powerful, complex, often challenging and unexpected sonic palette; distinctive and unique; Melodic and bold."

The Basque dance group "Eskola", from Donostia, will be performing at the MacLennan International Folk Dance Festival, in Orpington, south-east London (Bromley - Kent), on the Bank holiday weekend from Saturday May 23rd till May 25th.

We were contacted some months ago by the organisers of the MacLennan International Folk Dance Festival, asking us to help them find a Basque dance group to join their festival this year. As a result we will be able to see the group Eskola here in south east London, along with some other great dance groups (Scottish, Swedish).

 

The public events on the official program are:

  • - Saturday 23 May 8-11pm International Folk Dance and Ceilidh - a chance to dance with our overseas guests (Swedish and Basque) and local groups. Each group will have 30 minutes to present a short item and then to teach a few simple dances to everyone.
  • - Sunday 24 May 2-5.30pm International Fold Dance Concert - each group will perform a concert item of 10-15 minutes in each half of the programme.

Venue for both events: The Priory School, Tintagel Road, Orpington, BR5 4LG.

 

Tickets available on the door for either event - Adult:£7.50, Concessions: £6.00, Child: £3.00 discounts for families and for both events. Licensed bar, refreshments, tombola, stalls.

In addition, we've been told by the organisers there will be many street performances all throughout the weekend.

 

So, all in all, this looks like a perfect chance for a great day out. Street and indoors traditional dance performances and a visit to check out this south east London town.

 

We'd ask you to make it there to welcome and support the young dancers from Eskola!

Membership Campaign October 2014

London Basque Society's logo

It has been fifteen years since we became a official Euskal Etxea, part of the world-wide network of Basque Cultural Centres. We have achieved so much throughout this time, and there is still a lot more we'd like to do in the future:

  • - We are the UK's official centre for teaching Euskara-Basque language.
  • - We assist and support members from our office in East London.
  • - We collaborate and network with people in the UK, Basque Country and internationally.

The Society continues to be open to anyone who supports its main goals.


The main way to help the Society is by participating in our events - lunches-dinners, concerts, parties, workshops, and of course, Euskara lessons. All of them are fantastic opportunities to share a few hours with other Basques in London and their friends, meet new people, practice Euskara and English.


Our annual membership campaign is now open




  • - You can become a member at any time during the year, and your membership will be valid from 1st October 2014 until the 1st October 2015
  • - A membership card will be provided with your annual fee.
  • - All members will be entitled to discounts on tickets to our events and are welcome to bring guests (different fees may apply to non-members) 


As you may be aware, during the past few years our funds from official entities (such as the Basque Government annual grant) have been drastically reduced, and we have decided to increase the membership fee to £25.00 per annum. Any donations and/or fundraising ideas in addition to this will, of course, be gratefully accepted. 
 All the money the Society raises will be put towards running this year's activities and to opening up a permanent Basque Centre "Euskal Etxea" in London.

There is so much that can be done and so much you could help with, so we'd ask you to give your support to the Society and if you can, get involved, and spread the word.

Fabio Javier Echarri talks about his book London July 2013

Book presentation by Fabio Javier Echarri in London July 2013

We are pleased to announce this new event for Tuesday, July 9th. In this occasion, we will have as a guest to Mr. Fabio Javier Echarri, a basque-argentinian writer, well known in the Basque diaspora and winner of the "Premio Andrés de Irujo" 2010 with his book Eusebio Zamacola Abrisqueta: un basauritarra en el Chaco argentino(ISBN:978-84-457-3183-3). He will be accompanied by his wife and two siblings.


Mr. Echarri will be talking about the subject of his winning book, the life of Eusebio Zamacola Abrisqueta, El Vasco, as he was known in his days, a Basque from Basauri who emigrated to Argentina in 1924, at the age of twenty, and did end up running into all sorts of adventures.


Amongst these, for one, becoming a bandit, a very much loved by the common-people bandit, fighting the widespread corruption in the system, and robbing the rich to spread the wealth around the many poor and helpless people of "El Chaco". They, in return, gave him and his gang support and assisted them in many occasions to avoid being caught by the law. He was well known and respected as a person with values and honour. He had two children on those days. After years being chased, he left "El Chaco" to go to the province of "Córdoba", where he tried to start a new life out of trouble.


He was finally caught, after his retirement, and did eight years in jail. He kept in touch with his children and when he finally got out in 1946, he married to Ms.Aurelia Fleytas, and had a quiet life working as an administrator in a sawmill in Quitilipi. And, still, had the time and the dedication to have another eight children!


We are hoping Mr. Echarri and his family will also be able to tell us much about the Basques in Argentina and Latin America. Their customs, their way to feel their "basqueness", etc. There'll be snacks and refreshments available. Please do join us for this event. Contact us for more information.

Screening of the documental Gazta Zati Bat in London June 2012 poster

We anticipate an interesting evening in which we'll be screening this documentary produced and brought to us by the initiative of the popular movement Nazioen Mundua. It has been directed by the Bertsolari Jon Maia. In their own words and from their official website:

This documentary presents the Basque conflict in a new/innovative way: it gives us a closed idea of the big facts, it tells us the story with small print, from the proximity/closeness, the intimacy and the humor…It shows us the "making-off" of the story. Far beyond what everybody sees, it tells us what nobody sees: the human factor. The spotlights illuminate the citizen, without leaving themselves fall in the fascination of the big names. Leaving behind a dark and difficult/ problematic past, "Gazta Zati Bat" ("A Piece of Cheese") is a story with a positive look towards the future.

The Basque Refugee Children of the Spanish Civil War May 2012

The Basque refugee children of the Spanish civil war May 2012

This year is the 75th anniversary of the arrival in Southampton of the Basque refugee children who had to leave the Basque Country in the midst of the Spanish Civil War. These children parted from Bilbao on the "Habana" on Friday 21st May in 1937, and arrived a day later in Fawley, Southampton. Many of them later stayed in Great Britain after the end of the war, settled, and formed their families over here. To mark this important date we are helping to organise a talk by Susana Sabín Fernández, in which she will introduce her book, "The Niños vascos. Memory and Memorialisation of the Basque Refugee Children of the Spanish Civil War in the UK" (ISBN: 978-84-457-3179-6), an investigation into the topic of both the lives of these refugees and also the process of their identity construction. The presentation will be in English and we would like to invite you all to join us on this evening on Wednesday, May 23rd. Free tea and biscuits available.

We then contacted Berri Txarrak and we have been able to arrange a second concert, this time at The Garage - same place as when we brought them over in 2004, only that this time is going to be in the small room upstairs instead of the main hall. The tickets are for sale now and the availability is going to be limited, so if you want to see Berri Txarrak in London again, make sure you act fast.

Update on Friday April 20th 2012 - The tickets for this concert are now sold out
