The Basque Country Music Office - Musika Bulegoa was set up with the intention of several musical associations to work together to strengthen the role of music as a key cultural element. Thus, it has become a new platform aimed at promoting music in the Basque Country.
The associations involved are:
The joint work of these entities was supported by the Vice-Ministry of Culture, Youth and Sport of the Basque Government, as well as by the Etxepare Institute -in relation to external dissemination - until Musika Bulegoa was established.
This Music Office was set up with the goal of supporting and strengthening Basque Country music and compositions in the Basque language. With this in view, it will gradually bring together all the agents dedicated to musical activities. Based on these objectives, the Office will be present in music fairs and meetings and in events organised by professionals in this sector; it will also promote a number of activities, such as concerts, round tables and discussions, conferences... with a view to creating a friendlier environment for the dissemination of Basque music.
