Txalaparta

This is a "txalaparta" an ancient instrument. It is made on wood of different trees in order to play different sounds. Some weekends ago there were some concerts in the old part.

Esto es una "txalaparta". Hace unos fines de semana, encontré una concentración con conciertos en el casco viejo.
