Sosegua showcases the tremendous range of emotions the txistu is capable of stirring, an alternative way of understanding a live performance and of establishing a complicity between the artist and the audience.
For Garikoitz, Sosegua would not have been possible without the close collaboration of Kepa Junkera, Josu Elberdin, Xabi Zabala and Santi Ibarretxe, all of whom contributed beautiful melodies, and of Mariano Santamaría, Xabier Zabala, Pello Ramírez, Oihane Igerabide and Iñaki Telleria, whose talents contributed to making the txistu sound even better.
In this highly personal album, Garikoitz pays tribute to his roots and to his people, sharing his own personal experiences and offering new ways of playing and of understanding our musical heritage.

“Being part of Sosegua has been a fantastic experience. The complicity between us has been wonderful, and that’s essential for something like this to work out well.
I’ve always felt very attracted by Garikoitz’ work. He’s a very open person who radiates trust. It’s really been very easy to work with him. Quite frankly, a very good experience”.
