Their lyrics are about nature and the folklore of Euskal Herria or Vasconia, a cultural region conformed by Spanish and French territories where Basque culture is very important. They have had many difficults to release their material, until in 2010, they released a LP called Iraganeko Bide Malkartsutik.
