*Txistu is a basque traditional three-holed flute played with a single hand, leaving the other free to lightly beat out the accompaniment on a drum. In the Basque Country too, it is an enormously important instrument for accompanying dancers, having acquired its own characteristics in the 18th century. Today enjoys a solidly established position in concert music.
