Gaiteiros de Lisboa

Gaiteiros de Lisboa

wow ... I wasn't expecting to hear such a great sound. This band (from Portugal) using a range of instruments (especially different types of bagpipes and drums) were absolutely great. They use traditional and modern instruments and create their own; they use classic and modern poetry for their lyrics and create their own. This traditional/post-modern mix in the hands of excellent and creative musicians just made my day.

This was at the Festa de Avante, perhaps the biggest annual festival in Portugal. All three generations go, the family atmosphere combines well with the hard politics, great food, brilliant music and just fun. No Reds under any beds here (it's organised by the Communist party) ... everyone's out on the streets partying!
