Oreka TX was founded by Harkaitz Martinez de San Vicente and Igor Otxoa in 1997 and since then they have been researching and expanding the possibilities of the txalaparta, experimenting with its musicality and building materials (from original wood to stone, tile, bamboo … even ice!), enjoying the txalaparta and purifying the enjoyment, after all.
The Oreka TX group is currently made up of txalaparta players Harkaitz Martinez de San Vicente and Mikel Ugarte and musicians Mixel Ducau, Iñigo Egia and Juan Jose Otxandorena. They have played on charts on five continents and made the txalaparta known to audiences and specialized media outside our borders.
In addition to merging with different music, they also have fun combining different disciplines, both dance, circus, audiovisual, popular sports and any element that is an incentive to build shows, along with many wonderful collaborators.
In addition to collaborations, awards and recognitions, it has always been a pleasure for Oreka TX to travel with the txalaparta, to spread the diverse and colorful Basque universe around the world.
