KEPA JUNKERA will perform at the Chino Basque Club
Kepa Junkera will be visiting the Chino Basque Club on Saturday evening May 22. He previously played at the Basque Cultural Center.
Junkera told Euskal Kazeta that his visit to Chino will coincide with a recording session in Los Angeles, where he will perform with blues musicians. He also hopes to work on a new music video while he is in the area before returning to the Bay Area after the Chino concert. In recent months, Junkera has been trying something new by recording with artists from a variety of genres. The songs have been in Euskera, the Basque language.
Junkera is probably the best internationally known Basque musician. He won his Latin Grammy in 2003 for Best Folk Album.
Raised in the Basque province of Bizkaia, Junkera has temporarily relocated his family to the Bay Area while he works with different artists in the U.S. and Latin America.
