The History of Basque Music
“Basque music” refers to the music that is created or experienced where Basque culture has been established or is practiced mainly in the present-day Euskal Herria (Basque Country) but also outside of its borders, including the music created by Basques in the diaspora.
Although in recent years research has been conducted on Basque music and musicians, until now there has been no panoramic view of Basque music. Therefore, this work embraces a chronological view of music from the Middle Ages to the twentieth century but also includes the most recent trends in composition with the addition of chapters on women and Basque music and a brief history of jazz, and popular music.
The bibliography incorporates a selection of the most relevant sources, and the volume concludes with a phonography listing the most representative audio files from the different eras of Basque music.
