Kantuketan: In Quest of Singing, a Musical Exhibition
During the 50th National Basque Festival in Elko, Nevada, a special exhibition was installed at the Western Folklife Center. This traveling display was available in our Wiegand Gallery for all to enjoy from July 3 - September 3, 2013.
Kantuketan: In Quest of Singing is a listening station with touch-screen monitor loaded with a wide assortment of musical samples from the Basque Country, from traditional tunes all the way to hard rock, along with interesting cultural information.
Kantuketan: In Quest of Singing, originated as part of an effort by the EUSKAL KULTUR ERAKUNDEA (Basque Cultural Institute) to inspire more singing in Basque, to conserve this rich heritage of songs and to pass it along to the next generation. The Basque Cultural Institute graciously offered to share their exhibit with the North American Basque Organizations, Inc (N.A.B.O.) and the Basque-American community.
