Has anyone heard of this instrument? It's played in the Basque country but it's origins are uncertain. It's basically a two row melodeon with twelve basses which give the same chords on push and pull (unisonic)Plenty of examples on youtube. Anstonishing playing!

A live La Musgana "En Concierto" album from 1997 features a guest trikitixa player who's HOT (and a vocalist who's equally so, and a whole lot more).

The Chieftains - Santiago (RCA Victor, 1997) This album is a fairly wild musical journey from northern Spain following Galician emigrants to the New World and back to musical links with Ireland. A wonderful introduction to the Txalaparta, trikitixa, rabel, and the gaita, unique instruments of this part of the world. A nice introduction to this very different celtic music, but still with a strong Irish spin.

do these guys play one? http://www.llandecubel.com/

La Musgana has played near here in Chico.

The player best known outside the Basque lands is probably Kepa Junkera. As well has his solo work, he's also collaborated with musicians including The Chieftains (who hasn't?) and Galician piper Carlos Nunez.

I also have a lively and life-affirming CD by an all-girl trio called Maixa Ta Ixiar, which uses the trikitixa prominently. I don't know if they're still around - I haven't heard much of them lately.

I'm in basque country right now (traveling around studying sword dancing, see post today) and have seen a fair amount of great players. I have to say that my favorite new instrument that I have found is the alboka, (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hbq3lsDTd_g) It sounds sort of like a bombard, and I rather love it!

I like the CD Trans-Europe Diatonique by Kepa Junkera, Riccardo Tesi, and John Kirkpatrick.

The alboka player Ibon Koteron has a couple of albums out, collaborating with other people. The sound isn't as tiring as you might think.

Jack -
That's called praising with faint damn.

...however true it may be. Some instrument types simply have a low pain threshold, as observing domestic pets attests. Scientific studies must have been done in this area, using the "Metallica" scale.
