I have to acknowledge that I do what I don't do with other artistic disciplines with music and rarely go to concerts of musical groups that I don't know. Besides the stage, we have today shared a dinner with the Ithaka quartet: Josune, Leire, Aran and Eneko.

This is not the first time they played in Sanagustin de Azpeitia, the concert they offered a few months ago on the small stage of the room. I have seen in the sound test and it has made it inevitable for me to compare the four young people I was seeing on stage with Ibil Bedi a few years ago. It's been four years since we dreamed of being on the small side of the room and being in the big one, which only took a few months. Normal. I don’t know what that first concert would look like, but I don’t think it was far from what was given today… uf, maybe they needed it from the beginning.

I ask them between salad and chicken thighs, to see what feelings they wanted to end the concert today, what was their “objective”. The four are clear: they are aware that this always influences, but they don't want to be on the stage based on feedback from the public, they don't want this to condition their attitude.

He's the only kid in the group and he's not a battery. The central part of the tab is sometimes empty, depending on the song. This center belongs to everyone and at the same time belongs to no one. I had already heard of “like OCD” and it may be, but I don’t think they need to compare with anyone. I flipped with the concert. Sometimes it happens: or “quality” (in quotation marks it is difficult to write that word without quotation marks) or attitude. But these have both. And 19 years. But Areta alerts me, the attitude surprises us because they are girls, Amets. And there, too, reason.

They tell us they were meeting us when we were playing at the Arraunetxe de Orio and Eneko brings us our set list of that concert to show us expressly. I'm not one of those who really get excited, but, I play -- a lot of excitement.

I would say that I have spent as well (or almost) as they listened. And it always happens to me (I would say that in general it is like this) that when I know songs I enjoy a lot more in the conciertos.Si I have heard the Oxala songs, I have thought on more than one occasion. It just takes a month for Villano, his first album, to see the light. From there, I will not waste my time.

For the conversation held until dinner, the masterclass on the stage and the possibility that today there are more women than men on the stage of Sanagustin, thank you and until soon, Ithaka.
