Coro (Gil) Goitiandia

2012 - Coro Goitiandia, Jordan Valley Centennial Celebration.

Coro was born in Donostia, Gipuzkoa in 1945.  She reminisced that her amona (grandmother) used to play pandereta and she and her sister always had panderetas beginning at a very young age. They used to go caroling to the homes of people that they knew on Christmas Eve with their panderetas.


Txantxangorriak (which means robin in Basque) was formed in April 2001 after watching a group of triki and pandero players from Gipuzkoa (Txorimaloak) who were invited by the Jaialdi Committee to participate in Jaialdi 2000.
