ABESBATZA

Historic journey

Hots Abesbatza  is a female choir emanated from Ganbara Abesbatza.  It was created in September 2016 under the artistic direction of Aitor Biain Bidarte and embraces voices from the towns near Oñati but also from other provinces. Nowadays it is formed by 40 female and male singers. Its choral journey has been prolific due to the fact that they have been able to participate in numerous musical series, concerts and workshops: They participated in the TV program named Oholtzan in EiTB, in concerts organised within a cycle of Basque Female Composers and also in the IV Maria Luisa Ozaita workshop for female choirs. At this point, it is important to highlight the audiovisual project Oroimenean which was presented in September 2019 and brought together choir, piano, string quartet, narrator and dance troupe. This project took as its milestone the experiences of a person suffering from Alzheimer. But without any doubt, the icing of the cake for Hots Abesbatza has been the recording their first CD that gathers their first four years. It is a choir that works both a capella pieces and pieces with piano accompaniment. Its repertoire includes from classical music to contemporary pieces apart from Basque  and international folklore. Samely, it is very common to see the choir working with chamber orchestras in more complex projects.  Nowadays, the piano parts are interpreted by Amaia Zipitria. Hots Abesbatza has premiered pieces of Basque composers such as Eva Ugalde, Josu Elberdin, Junkal Guerrero, etc.
