erlea (written in lowercase) means bee in Basque and is the result of the tireless work of two musical beekeepers, Miren Zeberio and Enrike Solinís, true guardians of the hives of ancient and traditional music. They have dedicated more than a decade to collecting the finest and sweetest honey from these genres.

As founders and directors of the Euskal Barrok Ensemble, they have released their works on prestigious international labels such as ALIA VOX, GLOSSAMUSIC, and UNIVERSAL, sharing the sweetness of their music with the world.

However, ten years of experience are not enough for these musical beekeepers, as they have decided to create a publishing hive named erlea, to carry out the entire process of creation and distribution of their projects, thus personally attending to each of their creative bees.

Welcome to erlea, the musical hive, where the sweetness and quality of the honey are guaranteed in every project.

Miren Zeberio Etxetxipia

(Tolosa, 1983)

Miren began playing the violin when she was very young with Ana Sebastián, with the encouragement and help of her mother. She attended secondary and higher education at the Conservatories of Irun and San Sebastián with Raffaela Accela and Christian Ifrim, respectively. Subsequently, she furthered her musical studies in Utrecht (The Netherlands) with Karen Turpie and her beginnings in the baroque violin with Antoinette Lohmann. Trained from a very young age by the EGO (Euskadiko Gazte Orkestra) and the JONDE (Spanish National Youth Orchestra), Gustav Mahler Jugendorchester was directed, among others, by Claudio Abbado.

She has participated in various early orchestral and musical projects, with Le Concert des Nations, BandArt, La Ritirata, Al Ayre Español, Orquesta Barroca de Sevilla, Constantinople, etc. In the last decade their artistic work has focused above all on the Euskal Barrokensemble, with which they have carried out several creative works of interest and hundreds of concerts internationally (Auditorio Nacional de Madrid, Kursaal and Teatros Arriaga, Stockholm Early Music Festival, Philharmonie de Liege, Flamenco Biennale Nederland, Radio France Paris, Tychy Guitar Festival, Montreal Baroque Festival...). He has always shared his artistic work with education, being a violin teacher at the Leioa and Bilbao Conservatories, among others. She is currently a professor of violin at the Escudero Conservatory of San Sebastián and mother of three wonderful children.

His classical training and his knowledge of early music give a special and versatile profile to Miren's playing. This varied and free interpretative capacity combines the seriousness and demand of classical music, the treatment and ornamentation of the sound of early music, and the capacity for freedom and improvisation of local music, which has been thoroughly developed in recent years as a participant and promoter of the Euskal Barrokensemble.

Enrike Solinís Azpiazu

Bilbao, 1974.

I studied guitar and early music at J.C. Arriaga de Bilbao and at the Escola Superior de Música de Catalunya, respectively. I have been awarded in several international guitar competitions, such as the Comillas International Competition, the Ataulfo Argenta International Competition and the Andrés Segovia Competition, and I rank among the greatest virtuosos of my generation. Musicians of very varied styles, such as Paco de Lucía, Narciso Yepes, Lutosławski, Steve Vai, Tinariwen and Los Panchos, have awakened my passion for music in me since I was little.

I am attracted to music from different cultures, and I have worked as a soloist and continuist with such important groups and conductors as: Hesperion XXI, Le Concert des Nations and La Capella Reial de Catalunya, directed by Jordi Savall; Concerto Vocale and Akademie für Alte Musik, led by René Jacobs; in the group Le Concert D'astrée, directed by Emmanuelle Haim; in the groups Baroque 21 Lab and The Rare Fruits Council, both directed by Manfredo Kraemer; and in many others. I usually give concerts at festivals around the world and in the main venues in Europe and America: Carnegie Hall in New York, Konzerthausen in Berlin, Champs Elysées in Paris, Culiacán International Festival in Mexico, Barbican Center in London, Nezahuyotl in Mexico, the Leo Brouwer Festival in Havana...

I am, together with Miren Zeberio, founder and director of Euskal Barrok Ensemble since 2006, with which I develop my own idea and career. Within classical music, critics and the public think that I have a very original style, and I try to make visible the greatest possible influence and cultural diversity in my works, with the aim of achieving direct communication with the current public.
