Oreka TX’s tools are experimentation and fusion…their goal is cultural interaction. This duo—Harkaitz Martinez de San Vicente and Igor Otxoa—plays the txalaparta, an instrument from Spain’s Basque region that consists of pairs of wooden planks struck with special mallets. They have traveled the world with their music, visiting far-flung nomadic societies and collecting sounds, images, and experiences which they share in the acclaimed 2007 documentary Nömadak TX.
