Basque Performances

Féile is delighted to welcome all of our international visitors, guests, and performers, none more so than our Basque compatriots who will be attending this year’s Féile in force. Over 50 Basque performers will be delivering a series of performances as part of Féile 30 celebrations. Burgaintzi is a dance group that promotes Basque dance and music from generation and exposes audiences to the culture and traditions of Baxe Nafarroa (one of the seven provinces in the Basque Country.)

Judimendiko Joaldunak are performers from Gasteiz. Their global exploits have included demonstrations in Palestine where they were sho at by the Israeli army during protests in Ramallah. Judimendiko Joaldunak are performers known as Zanpanzar, which part of their tradition is to inform the community about local festivities, a very fitting inclusion to Féile 30 celebrations! With their ‘cowbells’ and very unique attire, they will be bringing a very visual and loud spectacle to this year’s Féile. Performances will include the Carnival Parade, and main concert events.
