North Wind and the Sun in Basque.
Basque is a language spoken in the Basque country: this is a region which straddles the Pyrenees in northern Spain and southwest France. Basque is unrelated to any other language in Europe and is a language isolate. It is believed to be one of the few surviving pre-Indo European languages in Europe. It is spoken by approximately 700,000 speakers.
The recording date is unknown.
