About Ruper Ordorika

Ruper Ordorika is a solo singer-songwriter from Oņati (Gipuzkoa) born in 1956. He got a college education in Bilbao, where he started to hang out with seminal Basque literary figures, such as B. Atxaga or J. Sarrionaindia. In the early and mid 1980s, he fashioned innovative elaborate and insightful music, much at odds with the prevailing trend in Basque music, i.e. the Basque rebellious rock. He has been the driving force behind several artistic and musical projects like the show Henry Bengoa Inventarium and the bands Mugalaris or Hiru Truku. His prolific career includes 15 music albums so far.
