Using the Basque oral tradition as a backdrop, Verde Prato (Ana Arsuaga) dives into the past of folk songs and liturgical chants to give them a timeless future through a voice and a sound that elevates electronics into a thrilling and ethereal mystery. Her debut album, Kondaira eder hura (2021), tells the story of a boy who leaves his village in search of a new life in the city and the perspective of those who see him leave, contemplating universal themes like love, family, friendship, fears, absences and desires. In 2022, she released Jaikiera, a limited edition in a 7’’ format. On its A side, Mundu Leunena, she paints the landscape of an individual’s inner world. On its B side, Herria Esnatzen, the dawn of a village. Both sides represent an intimate description of an individual and collective awakening enveloped in a tragic but sweet tone.
