Biographical details

Biography
Although he does not live there, he never strays too far from his native Hendaya. He studied at the ikastolas of Seaska (Federation of the schools in Basque) and then he landed in Leioa to study journalism. He devotes himself mostly to bertsolaritza, although from time to time he carries out journalistic works.
As he is son of the bertsolari Jexux Arzallus, he was born in an environment plenty of bertsos and as a result, he began to sing when he was still very young.
He won the 2013 National Bertsolaris Championship and was runner-up in the 2009 edition; besides, he has always been finalist since 2005. He also won the championship corresponding to the provinces of Lapurdi, Baxenabarre and Zuberoa in the years 2008, 2010 and 2012, and the four championships of Navarre between 2000 and 2003.

Ekoizpen oharrak
Gazte-gaztetatik bertsotarako abilezia harrigarria izan du Ametsek. Nerabe baino ez zela, plazarik ezagunenetan heldutasun handia erakutsi zuen. Eskola zaharraren moldean baina ikuspegi modernotik kantatzen du. Bertsolari bizia da, bizi-bizia, eta Joxe Agirreren bertsokera du maiteen.
