A totally engrossing journey, Nomadak Tx is the story of two intrepid musicians who travel the world on the life force of music and musical sounds, utilizing the Txalaparta, a Basque percussion instrument played by two people simultaneously. They travel through India, Lapland, the Sahara and Mongolia, fusing their specific sound and rhythms with those of remote nomadic peoples. Whether riding a horse in Mongolia, a train in Bombay, crossing the Algerian desert, or skiing in the Arctic Pole, they play the Txalaparta everywhere, making it a tool to communicate the desires of all they meet. Pilgrims in search of sounds, they find them in unique, remote cultures, amongst peoples who will not lose their voice. They are attuned to listen and as they travel the sounds rise up, fusing into musical statements of ever-increasing complexity.
