Description
For their Nömadak Tx project, Harkaitz Martinez de San Vicente and Igor Otxoa visited and made music with nomad musicians in Mongolia, India, Morocco, Lapland, and a Western Saharan refugee camp in Algeria. The duo call themselves Oreka Tx from the Basque word for "balance" and the initial letters of the Basque instrument txalaparta. Pronounced "tchala-parta," it's a kind of xylophone made of wooden planks supported by insulated stands, struck from above by two players (txalapartaris), each using a pair of pestle-like wooden sticks. It's a journey as rewarding for the listener as it obviously was for them.

"On 'Ice Tx,' recorded in an ice hotel in Jukkajarvi, Sweden, a txalaparta made of ice is the featured instrument. On 'Bagu-Aahmedabad,' we meet an Adivasi storyteller and impromptu versifier and his wife, who also contributes to the song. 'Amazigh' is a sweet, swaying melody about the life of the Berbers."—Roots World
