In Juanjo Mena’s native Spain, music erupts in the streets and brings communities together. This season, the May Festival explores the cultural tradition of the ochote, an 8-man vocal ensemble once popular in the Basque regions of Spain and France. Listen for the May Festival’s ochotes in special pre-concert recitals on May 25 & 26. The appearances of the ochotes are Juanjo’s gift to the May Festival and a celebration of his own culture.
