About Anje Duhalde

Born in Arrangoitze in the northern Basque Country, he was a founder member of the 70s folk and progressive rock band Errobi along with his friend Mikel Ducau. He then started his solo career in the 80s, which would span for many years till these days, still going strong, and would produce a great number of records which have become a reference of folk and traditional music in Basque language. Very few Basque singer/songwriters have released as many records as Anje Duhalde has and very few played as many live performances as well, just about everywhere in the the Basque Country and beyond. He is well known for his warm vocals, and has contributed and influenced many other Basque artists be it in the rock, folk or traditional music. His sources of musical inspiration are many as he himself enjoys listening to a wide variety of styles. He has traditionally given particular relevance to the lyrics in his songs.

Looking into his career and considering his vast legacy and influence in other Basque artists, it would be quite safe to say he has rightfully earned his place amongst the greatest Basque singer/songwriters.
