Beñat Achiary interviewed
Francis Marmande interviews the singer Beñat Achiary who mixes jazz and the vocal improvisation of his Basque home country during the festival Errobiko Festibala ( Le Monde ). He also sings jazz themes, but he does not see himself as a jazz singer. In his art he wants to break up the borders between improvisation and interpretation - in the tradition of Basque culture, in which re-living, re-birth and the perpetual improvisation plays an important role.
