The CD "NAIZ" - first opus of this triptych is a result of the memorable encounters (concerts, radio broadcasts, TV, etc.) with artists stemming from the Basque scene and other genres.
This album is above all a human story. A story of sorrow, but also, a shout of love thrown in the face of a society that practices a hypocritical lifestyle shamelessly! And who do not hesitate to deny today, what they felt passionate about yesterday
A story of tenderness as well, because, without tenderness, these megatons of love which we owe to the Other, cant exists Nothing can exist!
Not even this claimed society -this unpredictable group of lobotomized bipeds - on the march towards Nothingness.
Finally a story of Hope! Without waiting for this journey tomorrow! An invitation to live and breath, moved by this legion of curiosity and indignation to refuse all which does not correspond to us any more.
We like this CD more than anything.
It is also in a new artistic direction. Produced on the Road: "at home" as Peio says, with a mobile studio. No doubt, this album is more acoustic than his previous productions.
We want to thank all the partners (musicians, artists, technicians, producers, media, and friends) who had confidence in us and accepted this challenge.

Because the Internet is the WORLD RADIO par excellence today, we chose to be inspired by Bernard Detxepare, visionary Basque poet who in 1545 said :
"Euskara, jalgi hadi kanpora, plazara, mundura"
"Basque Language, go out of the kitchen, goes out to the plaza, goes throughout the world!"
