Later, Yves invited Xabi to play at his concert and from there many ideas and the project arose Euskadi / Quebec Connection. In this concert both artists will perform their repertoire with their musicians and will perform a joint finale where they will share their songs.

Lambert was a co-founder and member for 26 years of the Québec cult group La Bottine Souriante. In 2004 he formed the Bébert Orchestra, and later his trio in 2010 with Tommy Gauthier and Olivier Rondeau. All his works respect the balance between authenticity and tradition, wasting humor on stage.

Yves’ trio will share the stage with the trio of the great trikitilari and composer Xabi Aburruzaga (Portugalete, 1978), who has won several awards playing both the piano and diatonic accordion. This great artist has recorded five albums, has performed in numerous countries, has won the ‘Ortigueira International Festival’ and has collaborated with other musicians such as Oskorri, Gwendal, Alasdair Fraser, Carlos Nuñez, Kepa Junkera, etc.
