Once you bring in the bag pipes, you've moved past "eclectic". AC/DC gets a pass.

Ná imirt píopaí dioscó, le do thoil
Subtly kickass set for this early March storm-cleared Sunday morn. Cheers RP!
Nice until that quarter note using singer opens up
See? Bagpipes cam rock.
7 -> 8 and that seems low now that I read my own words...
Superb!
hm...i've seen this from name Ivan Kupala - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E_0j_38Tda0 :)
Heard this for the first time yesterday and gave it an 8. Now it's in heavy rotation on my player and I've upped it to a 9. Amazing stuff.

Perdona moldrien :-)

- Carlos... Núñez -> Galicia (gaitero amigo y colaborador de Chieftains)
- José Ángel... Hevia -> Asturias (co-inventor de la "gaita electrónica multitímbrica").

Greetings.
interesting piece!  
{#Clap} and quite a bit of eye candy too! {#Tongue-out}
...and breathe ! new to me, catchy for sure. Is it really being played that fast?
makes me wonder - anyone remember the 'Stylophone'?
Good to hear Hevia here. Greetings from Spain :)

If you like the pipes try any album by the “The Red Hot Chilli Pipers”. Contemporary songs and cover versions reworked for the bagpipes. Brilliant live but ear damagingly loud and thats without any amplification.


Aye, it's grand to hear the pipes on RP, even Asturian  Pipes are still pipes, right.?! {#War} right!
My Fermanagh born grandfather used to play the fiddle on BBC radio with his brothers. I hope he would think it was wonderful the way his Irish music stays contemporary.

I tried to like it. But it's akin to the long winded rock lead guitar solo's of the 70's and 80's - that just went on and on.

It would be far better without all the synth stuff in the background, maybe some real drums? Perhaps 20% slower? 
The definition of a gentleman is someone who knows how to play the bagpipes . . . but doesn't.
I've always thought bagpipes sounded just how one would expect squeezing the air from an eviscerated animal's stomach through some tubes should sound. Thoroughly unpleasant.

afro-celt sound system?
My floor standing speakers are LOVING this track.   :-)
 
Mercy for my ears !! {#Stop}

Knees one Bill, nothing like the Ol Bagpipes to get the a feet tapping. A welcome break from the norm musically.


I'm throwing at Alaska Scottish Highland Games this weekend.  I'll have bagpipe music stuck in my head all next week.  Nice to get a jump start on that now.

If you're talking of the Glasgow football club, it's a soft 'c', otherwise it's a hard 'c'. No, I don't know why, and I've been an Albaphile for decades.

 Couldn’t agree more. I’d also recommend the ‘Red Hot Chilli Pipers’ who use traditional Scottish pipes in a very untraditional way.
 
Seconded. Modern Celtic music is characterised by fusion of many styles and cultures, as typified by the Afrocelts. The Red Hot Chilli Pipers are fantastic live, an absolute hoot and also immensely skilled musicians. Other such bands to look out for are the Peatbog Faeries (staggeringly good live), Salsa Celtica, and Shooglenifty, to name but a few. There truly is a musical and cultural Celtic Renaissance going on, which reflects the multiethnic, inclusive and progressive nature of modern Scotland in particular. Very, very exciting.

If you fancy travelling to Glasgow in January, the annual Celtic Connections festival, stretching over some weeks, gives a very strong flavour of the immense variety of Celtic music.
{#Frustrated}
If I can't have Paul Mounsey/Nahoo, I'll take Hevia.

Normally I ador the music from the Gods own instrument, but this is too english dance mix.


If you like this kind of stuff can I recommend Scotland’s very own “Red Hot Chilly Pipers”. They do a fabulous mix of traditional and contemporary music as well as some truly extraordinary cover versions.

In fact, it's an electronic bagpipe. It's operated by a bagpipe-like MIDI controller, and the sound created by a MIDI module. Or that's what I understood when the guy explained it on TV.

By the way, the guy is from a land called Asturias, next to my own (Galicia). Just to impart a tiny lesson of spanish geography :-)



How odd. Looks like an iPod compatible walking cane.


Somewhat less glamorous than the lone piper standing on the battlements of Edinburgh Castle.
Esa canción es la leche
MAKE IT STOP
This song reminded me it was time for a massage, with that throwaway music those places play. That's what this song is — a throwaway.

6....no...7...okay...8...wait...6...yes, 6....maybe a 7?

Love it! Melody is very classical in progression, but it's a whole new twist. Great piping.

Yes!  this is great!

...GO!...GO!...GO!...GO!...GO!...GO!...GO!
I've been slogging through files, deleting and adding, battling cats and kittens in fracas-mode, and trying like hell to take a deep breath. And suddenly, this song demands that I listen to it, so I do.  And it's good.  Really good.  It pulled my focus, but not in a bad way. I'd like to hear more from this artist.
Not nice

Even though their albums can be too much electric bagpipe, the occasional song is a refreshing change. This one is one of their best.
I'm putting my kilt on!

Great North Spanish (Asturian) {#Clap}
Celtic music


Well I didn't used to like this sort of thing but I have just been listening to the great John Mcginnis of Stone the Crows playing on the same night with a young local piper just back from a tour of duty in Afghanistan and they were both great! I can finally handle pipes and rock together but takes some chewing. Prefer the Irish pipes meself loik.. and by the way this isn't crap as someones friend from glasgow so delicately put it. If he can play this well and get a record deal and tour constantly then I suppose he knows what he's talking about?

Hmm, three great tastes that don't taste great together. 

That's a nice bit of piping there!
Very cool use of bagpipes and doo!  {#Smile}  Loved it!
Aye!

It's 2:30 into the Mike Meyers video to the song analogy, but it's a funny 2:30 {#Wave}
Thanks to Bill's excellent, selective taste, I have a new appreciation of bagpipes, banjo, and (to a lesser extent ) didgeridoo.
Thanks, Bill {#Sunny}

It is different and is pretty good.  Maybe not my thing but I did enjoy it.

Listen. Learn. Wise up. Peace. (Having said all that, this IS pretty awful, there's much better "World" music out there, GREAT music. Just try, please...)
 
Well said.

If I only listened to American music, I'd lose my mind.  Emo, Mall Punk and "Soulless" Metal run the American rock scene.  (that's not to say the stuff "below the surface" from the US isn't great)Getting more local... I'm from New Jersey and if I were told I should only listen to Springsteen and Bon Jovi, I believe I would have shot myself by now.

To the dude that doesn't like "world music" I say... go find another station. 
Hevia's Busindre Reel played in practically every kitschy kilt store up and down the Royal Mile in Edinburgh. Loved it! {#War}

So...I've got lots of celtic piping tunes which we enjoy.......but not any Spanish Asturian pipe music. We enjoyed this sound....very energetic...and this is different to the other celtic fringe style sounds. so I've just ordered this on Amazon.  Out of interest, Northern Spain.....Asturias, Cantabria, Galicia,.....is verdant and green and sooooooo different to the hot arid sunny south ( WHICH IS FAB TOO!) and well worth a look if ye can get there. Cheers me dears!
As a piper myself, I find this pretty average. Not bad as background music in a cafe I suppose.

Way overproduced for my taste, but I'm digging the Spanish pipes.
Boring and easily generated by a computer.
My friend from Glasgow says this is pure crap, by the way
Afro Celt Sound System do this much better.

This is still cool, though.

In fact, there's substantial evidence that Celts populated the Iberian Peninsula well before they migrated to Scotland, Ireland and England (I'll NOT call them the "British Isles"!)

I really like this one, but the fact that it's electronic bagpipes is a bit of a letdown. It's like when I found out that the Piano Smasher from Blue Man is actually itself MIDI.
Thought for a minute we were listening to the Riverdance soundtrack ... WTF ... I'm a sucker for this Celtic-y stuff.
