Commissioning New Instruments for Musika Etxea
Focused on preserving the culture of traditional arts in the Basque region, the Musika Etxea Academia Municipal de Folklore is an important organization in Vitoria-Gasteiz, Spain. The Slow Fund supported the commissioning of new instruments for the Academia Municipal de Folklore, and the teaching of students on performing traditional Txalaparta, Alboka and Txirula music.
The academy is dedicated to teaching traditional Basque music and dance just north of Rioja. Through concerts and Agurra dancing, the school has kept this slice of Basque heritage (from instruments to attire) alive throughout the city with its performances.
B&R’s travellers in the Rioja region are often treated to a private performance of traditional Basque music and dance.

How Your Trip Makes a Difference
Did you know – every time you travel with B&R it contributes to the Slow Fund?
Each booking contributes $20 to the fund which is then matched by B&R. Every traveller booked means a total of $40 is allocated to projects around the world to directly impact the environment and communities where you travel.
You also have the option to balance your international flights through our partnership with C-Level. For every flight balanced, B&R will donate $10 to the Wild Aligned, Forests without Frontiers project in Romania, connecting remnants of the great Carpathian forests.
