BELTZA. Bye, Bai, Cash

It is 8 years since the death of Cash and this is the first disc produced in the Basque Country to pay tribute to him. Twenty bands have joined forces to bring us the songs of the man in black once again.

December 2011

This disc includes many of Cash’s most well-known songs, from the early successes to original songs included in the series American Recordings which have already become classics. All performed by a broad range of punk-rock bands (Vómito, Hysteria, Carniceros del Norte, Porco Bravo or Morfi Grei, former member of La Banda Trapera del Río, among others), glam bands (Diaboli Kash), hardcore bands (Zartako), metal (Elenco, Ratzinger, Arbian), southern rock (Hash), blues (Last Fair Deal, Petti, Travelling Brothers) and rock & roll (Los Rotos). Zarama’s contribution to the disc deserves a special mention. Instead of producing an adaptation, the band from Santurtzi has produced an item as a tribute to Cash, Jon & Johnny Cash, which combines the txistu (Basque flute), country and the aurresku (Basque dance of honour).
