The Basque American Sound of Boise with Amuma Says No
Description
Amuma Says No is a Basque American band based in Boise, Idaho. Keeping the heart and soul of Basque music in America, the band brings together the best of traditional trikitixa—a duo of accordion and tambourine—with a modern rhythm section and songs sung in Euskara. In this interview, singer Jill Aldape and accordion player Dan Ansotegui discuss the strong Basque community in Boise, the origin of their name (amuma means “grandma” in Euskara), and the threads of bicultural identity in their music. Editing and production: Lillian Schneyer Videography: Pruitt Allen, David Barnes, Deric Brown, Andrea Curran, Helen Lehrer, W.N.
