Txistulari Band, every Wednesday in May and June.
"Txistulari is a kind of fipple flute that became a symbol for the Basque folk revival. The name may stem from the general Basque word ziztu "to whistle." This three-hole pipe can be played with one hand, leaving the other one free to play a percussion instrument. Evidence of the txistu first mentioned as such goes back to 1864." 1
These won't be traditional concerts but relaxed and joyous musical txistulari sessions showcasing humour and a part of basque culture.
19:00, around 40 minutes.
Where: Sala Biblioteca municipal - San Jerónimo street entrance.
Every Wednesday during May and June.
