catalan band

Bilingual song in Basque and Catalan by the Basque band Oskorri featuring the Catalan singer Albert Pla, about the importance of the language to our national identity.

Hizkuntza gabe esaidazue
nola irtengo naizen plazara,
geure arima hiltzen uzteko
bezain odolgalduak ez gara.

Digueu-me com jo sortir podria
al carrer sense la meva llengua
no som tant desgastats com per deixar
morir així la nostra ànima.

Original song all in Basque with subtitles in Spanish here.
