Jaialdi 2015 International Application Available


JaialdiEven though Jaialdi 2015 is a little more than 2 years away, July 28-August 2, 2015, organizers have already started preparations for this huge event that takes place in Basque America once every five years.  One of the first orders of business is to choose groups: choral, dance, music, to perform at the event.  Jaialdi has set up a special page on its website: for international groups who are interested in participating to apply.  The necessary forms can be found here in four languages.  Chosen applicants will be notified by November of this year to allow ample time to get organized as well as find funding if necessary.  Groups will be responsible for their own travel, while Jaialdi will take care of room and board while in Boise.
