Hello everybody. This time not about food, your favorite spot, or something else.
This time it's all about music. We all have our favorite song, favorite group, favorite music style. Yes of course.....but we are not going to talk about this.
Music is made with instruments. That can be all kinds of different instruments themselves, your body, or totally something crazy.

And yes they did not invent them.
History said that they originate from ancient Egypt and were brought to Scotland by invading Roman Legions. Others maintain that the instrument was brought over the water by the colonizing Scots tribes from Ireland.
Ancient Egypt does appear to have prior claim to the instrument, however; from as early as 400 BC the ‘pipers of Thebes’ are reported to have been blowing pipes made from dog skin with chanters of bone. But it is the Scots, especially the Highlanders who made them as we know them now.
But enough history :-)
Why bagpipes. I just love the sound. A sound that is somehow hypnotical. It even, when the right song is played, made me cry. And you know the sound is just one long sound without any interruption.

And there's one very well-known song: "Amazing Grace". Find a nice version by The Snake Charmer here: https://youtu.be/OJi-uKOlLV4
