Txalaparta sticks


A set of four txalaparta sticks (palos, makilas), made from ash (fresno). The txalaparta is a two-person wooden plank instrument from the Basque Country, is spectacular to see and wonderful to play!

We have an article that gives good background information about it that was published in the Galpin Society Journal. You can find it as a free download on academia.edu. Or, if you'd like a copy get in touch and we'll send one to you (thanks to the Galpin Society for allowing this).
