The txistu and the tabor drum are light instruments but perfectly capable of leaving listeners amazed at what they hear.
Bihurrikeritan (clowning around) is a solo rendition of a classical repertoire of what is known as “virtuoso txistu”, embracing the legacy of unforgettable maestros of the txistu such as Polentzi Gezala, José Luis Garay and Boni Fernández.

In doing so, he has attracted the interest of international composers in himself and his instrument, with symphonic pieces being dedicated to the txistu and thereby elevating it to its maximum expression"
