Interview to Tana Garrido "Stories of lives in transit" rtve play radio (link)

Such a pleasure meeting Tana and go along with her in this path of notes and colours that come back from a past. Travels, family, flavours and documents refer the latent nostalgia of these stories of Basque, Navarrese, migrant memories. Working again with Lila Falcón is always great, also getting to know new fellows.
