Jabier Muguruza
Enegarren Postala

This pop recording from Basque Spain sits squarely on the border between folk-ballad and schmaltz, I know, but this is just such a great voice that I am willing to forgive the sometimes overly-lush production just a bit. Muguruza has been described as 'a cantautor of infinite gentleness' by El Periódico. El País de las Tentaciones says he has "a tenuous voice that modulates with subtlety and the lyrics fly with the fine irony of the mundane." And El Pais says 'it is an ironic, subtle and intensely poetic vision.'

You be the judge - listen:
CCCLXII
Loak hartutako....
Petita festa

Please note!
Most CDs have been imported from Europe or Asia. They are not all shrink-wrapped, and I am not going to con you by wrapping them here just to make you think they have been sterilized in America. We guarantee that the CDs and the contents are all brand new and in perfect condition. Whenever I can, I use recycled shipping materials. They may not look as pretty on the outside, but they save money and keep the trash dumps a little bit emptier.
