Mikel Laboa is one of the most important Basque writers-composers-performers and is considered to be the patriarch of contemporary Basque music. His most famous composition, Txoria Txori (the bird) is showcased in the film The Basque Country : A Nation Without Borders. This powerful symbol of Basque resistance, from Laboa’s 1974 album Bat Hiru, is considered to be one of the greatest recording of all time in Basque language. Mikel Laboa passed away in Decembre 2008.
