Zortziko Portu Errota



Portu Errota has been always a place of encounter and friendship. From the friends who have shared in unforgettable evenings we kept a great memory. Also, I am sure that Portu Errota has left track in many of the people who have known to appreciate their " enchantments ".

Antón Larrauri is one of the great friends who have been caught by the spirit of Portu Errota. It does already more than twenty years created beautiful zortziko in which it is explained of superb way which means Portu Errota for us.

To that magnificent music Eusebio Erkiaga it composed the letter where it is reflected feeling of Antón and of other great friends who although no longer are in this world always they will be present between the walls of the mill.




Errota, "Portu Errota"
aran baketsuan,
itsasoaren indarra
galtzen dan lekuan.

Garnikaldeko arana
urez, lurrez zelai,
ba ditu euskalerriak
milla mendi garai.

Eguzkipean sarri dago,
laiņo artean sarriago:
"Portu-Errota" ate zabal
adiskide jatorrentzako.

Indar ta bakez bazter eder,
zureganako naiz zoroa;
eio ta eio diharduzu
euskal-lurreko artoa.

Bizitzako errotan
Eioko gu ere,
askoren ordez
bat bihurtuko
gu guztion ore.
Ene "Portu-Errota"
Millazka artean,
Lehenez bakar izana
orain inguru betean,
Kla, Kla....

Errota, "Portu-Errota"
aran baketsuan,
itsasoaren indarra
galtez dan lekuan.
Leku-lekuan, leku-lekuan,
Lekuan....
Gernikaldeko "Portu-Errota"
aran baketsuan.



Of all the counted one up to here, they give good faith of it that to Portu-Errota approaches, since as it says the poem is a door opened to the true friends.
