- - Andréa Bidart, Begoña Echeverria and Cathy Petrissans are the daughters and granddaughters of Basque immigrants who grew up together in Chino, California. As Noka, they specialize in songs about Basque culture, gender, and identity. They are particularly interested in songs that use Noka, a familiar form of address historically used in speaking to a girl or woman in whom one had konfiantza or trust. Noka has almost disappeared from everyday speech, but it is still used among some immigrants. Mikel Markez, a singer and songwriter from the Basque Country, joined Noka for their concert at the Library of Congress.
