Euskeltic Connections Presents:
ITZIARREN SEMEAK + ESPERANZA + GLUTEN FREAKS
Itziarren Semeak were formed in 2007 around Bilbao in the Basque Country, is a nine piece band fusing ska, punk and reggae. They took strong influence from Basque bands from the whole RRV Movement (Rock Radical Vasco) that
was born in The Basque Country in the 80’s. They combine a unique mix of punk beats and ska rythms, with a strong political message of solidarity and resistance.
Esperanza are a nine-piece ska collective from Glasgow famed for live shows where their infectious rhythm has the crowd involuntarily jumping in time. In several hectic years of gigging around Scotland and beyond, they have honed and perfected a high-tempo set, with superb self-penned songs, until there isn't an ounce of fat left on it.
Gluten Freaks are a female fronted 9-piece band with a unique style of "party ska". Ska roots mixed with punk, gypsy, calypso and Latin vibes. Your parents won't advise it, your doctor won't prescribe it! Jump around and go Gluten Freak with bad ass brass and dancing rhythms...welcome to the Gluten Freaks Show!
