BGKO presents “Avo Kanto”
Avo Kanto is the continuation of a journey that started two years ago with “del Ebro al Danubio”.
Plenty of concerts, places, people, musicians and moments that still move us, gave birth to the songs on this album. Nearly all are traditional songs, interpreted throughout time, passed down through generations while never losing their power to evoke the deepest feelings of the human being. Today these songs rise again, touching us deep in our hearts and souls.
Avo kanto means “grandfathers songs” in esperanto, the only language capable of expressing the diversity of our band.
BGKO presents the video clip of “Testament d’Amèlia”
“Testament d’Amèlia” is a singular traditional song for its lyrics and melody. It reminds us the strength of oral tradition of the strength of oral tradition, which, without pretensions, has been able to capture lights and shadows of the human being.
This is the second videoclip of the album “Del Ebro al Danubio”, a mature album compiled after numerous live shows and unique musical exchanges. Enjoy this beautiful piece of visual art by Felipe Mejías and Iñaki Fernández, capturing the romance of traditional Catalan music, using the technique of sand art.
