 Opinions and other informations:

    

In my opinion it's one of the best basque progressive folk bands. This group has two excelent records:"Izukaitz" (1978) is an excelent record of pure celtic folk music with some rock nuances, but nothing of progressive. The second one is named "Otsoa Dantzan" and it's a progressive folk rock record in a style very close to the best of Steeleye Span. Very recomendable if you like that style. Both of them (the vynils are among the most expensive spanish records!) have been released in CD by the Lost Vinyl label. (Raimondo Piras)


In 2002 a re-release in vinyl of the first album, originally by Xoxoa, has been made, now through the label Guerssen. The same was made in 2004 with "Otsoa Dantzan".
