And on weekend we received a very sad news, Araitz left us… she was one of the girls whom we dedicated our charity project of the year 2017, we offered two concerts in Zumaia and Bilbao to help the NGO "Sanfilippo VASS". All our support to the whole family. Muxu bat, Araitz.

Announcement of AITZINA FOLK Festival and AEFAT Association
KORRONTZI, SOLIDARY GROUP:
In this latest edition of our Aitzina Folk Solidarity Festival, the most complicated since the beginning due to the pandemic, Korrontzi's support has been decisive. The group decided to collaborate with the solidarity objective of the festival, the investigation of ataxia telangiectasia, thus donating all the profits obtained from the ticketing of two concerts held in Bilbao and Vitoria-Gasteiz. In total, the contributed amounts to a sum of 5,000 euros. A gesture that says a lot about the values of this group led by Agus Barandiaran, who already collaborated with the Aitzina Folk in 2016 with his project “KORRONTZI BENEFIC”. And we appreciate it more in these moments in which we are all fighting for the recovery of cultural activity with the coronavirus crisis.
