Joaldunak are “those who resound”, the great bell ringers heralding the Carnival parade between the twin villages of Ituren and Zubieta in the Basque-speaking Spanish Naffaroa.

This film is part of Carnival King of Europe DVD 3 - THE BELL RINGERS OF EUROPE. The clanging of conspicuous, monumental cowbells is the most distinctive opening sound of a number of European winter masquerades.
