NABO's Kantari Eguna: Day of Basque Song

At least once a year, NABO co-sponsors a day where Basque song is celebrated. The location alternates between Gardnerville, Nevada's Mendiko Euskaldun Cluba and Rocklin, California's Iparreko Ibarra Basque Club, but goal remains the same: getting people together to sing! Come join the fun! Celebrate + Educate = Perpetuate
