Alone, with just a keyboard and her voice as her instruments, Gipuzkoa’s Ana Arsuaga stands with Verde Prato at the forefront of the most indigenous folk, experimenting with the hallmarks of traditional Basque music, exhibiting unexpected creative freedom until she ends up warping the everyday nature of her own folklore. The deconstruction of an entire collective identity, Verde Prato is a lyrical projection pushed to maintain the contemporary ways of the likes of Connan Mockasin or Cate Le Bon, but without overlooking the marks of those verses scrawled on napkins by the immortal Mikel Laboa. #folk
