"They're called the Kalakan trio, and they make me wanna shake it!" – Madonna

The deep traditions of the Basque Country region come alive!

Hailing from the diverse and culturally rich region that spans the borders of France and Spain, Kalakan is a three-man vocal and percussion ensemble that has become one of the most exciting new vocal ensembles on the scene.

Performing acoustically with only their voices accompanied by traditional Basque percussion instruments, the trio create proud and primal three-part harmonies in the unique language of their homeland, set to a pulsating backdrop of beats. They sing the words of the unique language found in 16th-century Basque texts and contemporary poets, creating arrangements that bring listeners on journeys from the arid plains of Herribera (Navarra) to the isolated valleys of Zuberoa, with detours through Rio de Janeiro, New York and London in between.

The champions of the unique Basque folk tradition have performed across Europe, the Middle East and the Americas with Madonna on her MDNA tour in 2012, and also toured Europe with the Labèque sisters.
