Fermin Muguruza, the iconic Basque musician, has announced a special concert at the Bilbao Arena on December 20 to celebrate his 40 years in music, marking his return to the stage after a decade-long hiatus. This event will not only serve to commemorate his career with Kortatu, Negu Gorriak, and his solo career, but also to take a stand against censorship and recent attacks by the extreme right towards arts and culture in Spain .

Celebrating four decades of musical revolution

From the combative chords of Kortatu to the hard-hitting rhythms of Negu Gorriak and the global explorations of his solo career, Muguruza has been a constant voice of resistance and innovation. His lyrics, often loaded with social and political criticism, have resonated with generations of listeners, and his musical style has transcended borders, influencing the music scene not only in the Basque Country, but internationally.

A concert against censorship

Muguruza has expressed his desire for this event to be a space for celebration and vindication, a response to recent attacks on cultural figures who have defended his works in the face of political and social pressures.
