Billy Joe - The Gascon Redneck

Not your average boineros, but somehow, I quite enjoyed watching this music video - it makes for a refreshing difference with all the traditional Basque and Béarnais folk music.

The song is named appropriately 'Béret Basque' and, interesting detail, all berets shown carry the stylized L logo of Laulhère on the side.

I failed to find much information on "rappeur" Billy Joe, apart from that he also goes by the title of The Gascon Redneck.

Ecology, tradition and sustainability feature high in his lyrics and vivid observers of the video will recognize a lot of Basque and Pyrenean symbolism.

Thank you, Frans
