  • Summary: Manex lives at the house known as Ametsa de Sara. He has written many songs and verses. (01:48") He was born in Sara in 1917. There were four brothers and one sister and he is the only one living now. His father was a carpentar and his mother a housewife. He went to the local school up to the age of twelve. He got a certificate and his mother took him to Donibane. There they left him to work. It was hard but the Basques were used to hard work. When he was eighteen he entered the Navy for three years. (05:50") He lived in Paris and he got married to a young woman from there. That is his cross. His son does not know Basque and that is unforgivable when you are the son of a Basque speaker.
