Scott Catalogue No. 1056

Bulgaria, like Scotland, is a country in which the bagpipe is considered by many the national instrument. The tradition has always been strong there and remained viable even during the dark years of most of the twentieth century, when Bulgaria suffered foreign occupation, war, and then repressive internal rule. Today the Bulgarian Gaida, in several varieties, and its music is again blossoming. This class of bagpipe is well represented on our "Bagpipes of the World" CD album, and can be seen in detail on this site at this location and also here (use your browser's "back" button to return here).
