S Y N O P S I SThe txalaparta is a unique musical instrument played by two people.The music resulting from this union doesn’t belong to either of them,but instead to the idea of them joining together and communicating.Nömadak Tx is a creative documentary, that tells the story based onHarkaitz Martinez’s and Igor Otxoa’s dream. These two musicianswant the txalaparta to become a meeting point, not only between twopeople, but between very different cultures.Pushed by this dream, Igor and Harkaitz travel to the north of India,to Laponia, to Mongolia and to the Sahara desert. The txalapartabecomes then a place where new things are born through musicaldialogue. The time they shared living among the adivasi –the lowestcast-, with the sami, with a tsaatan community and with the Saharahuifolk, opens them up to new realities.It’s not a comfortable journey. We are looking for the real thing,everyday sounds you hear when you meet people. On horseback inMongolia, by train from Bombay, traversing the desert in Algeria,skiing in the limits of the artic polar circle, the txalaparta can be heard.
