GETXOPHOTO invited the prestigious bertsolari Xabier Paya to develop this new format that combined oral language and images.

The bertsolari improvises sung verses, always respecting both the melody and the rime, as well as the preestablished topic. This ancient tradition counts with strong roots and popularity in the Basque Country. The new generation of young bertsolaris has raised the quality of this art until levels never reached before and has obtained amazing successes. Lead by Xabier Paya, three of the maximum exponents of this new generation of bertsolaris, Igor Elortza, Unai Iturriaga and Sustrai Colina, offered a new saio in which
they improvised bertsos basing on the images exposed in GETXOPHOTO, offering this way a personal and sung interpretation of the festival.
