The group Oreka TX has been in Argentina, with the aim of publicizing the txalaparta all over the world. The txalapartaris Harkaitz Martinez de San Vicente and Mikel Ugarte, together with Mikel Duxau to alboka, presented Nomadak TX , and have enjoyed the company of Silvia Iriondo as guest artist at the tour supported by the Etxepare Basque Institute.

The group of musicians has visited Buenos Aires, and has been really busy. On December 13, they organized a workshop on txalaparta in Siete Octavos Percusion. The following day they offered a free concert at the National Library; the musicians also chatted with the audience. The visit of the Basques has not passed unnoticed, and Argentine media also echoed their musical work.

During his stay in Buenos Aires, the group presented the show Nomadak TX. That is a curious concert-travel project where music and images are mixed on the stage. The music is performed on live, based on the soundtrack of the documentary Nomadak TX, a film that was shot during theirs trips in India, Lapland, Sahara and Mongolia, all along with local musicians. The project was launched in 2006 when they decided to travel to teach txalaparta to musicians from other countries.

After the stay in Buenos Aires, Oreka TX travels to Galicia with their txalaparta rhythms.
