Txalaparta Kontakt Library

The Txalaparta is a traditional Basque percussion instrument that originated in the Basque Country, an autonomous community in northern Spain and southwestern France. It is essentially a wooden xylophone played by two performers. The name "Txalaparta" itself is derived from the Basque words "txalapar" (meaning "to play") and "arta" (meaning "wood").

The instrument typically consists of several wooden planks or boards of varying lengths and thicknesses. These boards are usually made of softwood, such as pine or spruce. The performers lay the boards horizontally on a support structure, such as sawhorses or wooden stands. The boards are then played by striking them with mallets, usually made of wood or other materials.
