l'istesso tempo

[Italian, the same tempo]

The same tempo. An indication in a composition that directs that the beat remains constant when the meter changes. In the case of 2/4 to 6/8, the meter is still counted with two beats per measure but the tempo or speed of the beat stays the same. All that has changed is the division of the beat (often referred to as  subdivision) from the duplets of the 2/4 to the  of the 6/8.
