Shawn...Trendafilov's a genius. check this one out too

look at his fingers
This man's fingering reminds me of the trills of the great Cecilia Bartoli or Joyce DiDonato! (amazing opera singers). Particularly the Bulgarian music. And the late Bella Silverman, though her vocal vibrato was slow, her trills were nevertheless just as amazing. (Unfortunately I can't find clips of these singers right now, but they ainn't pipers!)
Here are several videos of the Italian Zampogna. Note that the sopranina drones are way too loud, but if you reduce the sound of them using an audio editor, they're just as amazing as Laura Bretan's amazing vocal dexterity as a 13-year-old Romanian opera singer! (Please PM me if you want to hear what I think are amazing opera singers, I'd rather keep this on piping, and perhaps a lot of people don't know what good healthy opera-singing sounds like having brought up used to a slow vibrato which will damage the voice, rather than a faster vibrato by way of developing the vocal trill. But again, just PM me for these, I don't want to be TOO off topic!):

And some Zampognas played with a little oboe woodwind called Ciaramella:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MkpU...&index=13&t=0s
(Note that the soprano in this recording is not as good as Cecilia Bartoli or Laura Bretan, only as good as another less-experienced singer called Abby Becker).
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M0wh...&index=14&t=0s
(This recording has no Zampogna, but a Ciaramella accompanied by an organ. This is the highest note ever played on the Ciaramella).

(Starts with an amazing bass Zampogna)

Here are two more Zampogna / Ciaramella pieces that I only discovered recently.
Our Sea (trio: Tenor Zampogna, Alto Ciaramella and Soprano Ciaramella)

Hymn to the King (full quartet: Bass Zampogna, Tenor Zampogna, Alto Ciaramella and Soprano Ciaramella)

Procrastinating is like smoking. Once you start, it's very difficult to stop. (I don't smoke, but I often procrastinated in school and it was very hard to stop).

I studied Bulgarian gaida for a year under a master player and teacher, and I can tell you there's nothing random about it. It's every bit as difficult as the most difficult Highland pipe music to play correctly.

Like any other sort of complex music it's impenetrable to the newbie. It takes many hours of listening to begin to figure out what's going on.

The ornamentation in the bavna pesen (what we call slow airs, akin to a sean nos air in Ireland or the urlar of piobaireachd) is particularly difficult to understand.

Anyhow my Gaida Hero has long been Kostadin Varimezov. Here's why.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s3g1...5Iy_F4np27QR-e

BTW those series of grace-notes in the bavna pesen are all done with the thumb. Try it. It's extremely difficult.

Then about the dance tune that follows, see how well you can find the "1" of each bar.

Those are my greatest "chills" videos, singing with the pipes. Up around the top is this- she has the voice of the angels.

But the hair-standing-uppest is this. We sent it out to space on Voyager. Two bagpipes, one voice, so that alien species can get some understanding of the soul of humankind. The voice of heaven and the drones of the earth.

Saw Rutkowski and La Grange at Piping Live in 2013. This first tune (La vie dure) is so haunting.....I can't get enough.

Greetings to All,

I have now listened to all... of the vids... except the
first ones that... theFrenchpiper put up... which now read
"Video unavailable"... and I did find it... to be a stretch...
but then... a bit of stretching... is oft times... a good thing. :)
(Helps to get us... out of our ruts. :)

Hmm... the zampogna... and the gaieta... and the native
music of each. Difficult for us to follow... hard to "catch"...
and to reconcile... with our more regular fare...

Perhaps but similar to... our... "Flowers of the Forest"... that
of which... many a good piper... has yet to make... heads or
tails... (I have known... and have been one... of several such.:)

What may be needed for an appreciation of this music is
first... a freeing of the mind... from our expectations... of
what... is supposed... to follow what...

Perhaps... just some quiet sittings... and letting this music
cascade... over... about... and through... letting the patterns
arrange themselves... as they will... may bring understanding...
(This has worked well for me... with "Flowers of the Forest"...
and other difficult bits... for first... it must be properly... heard.)

The older fellow... in Shawn's first vid... what grace!!... and in
a later one... helping the younger fellow with some difficult
passages... what style!!... and quiet authority... gently given.

Their music... like our own... is grand... and more than well
worth the time... and the effort... to hear... and appreciate. :)

To All... the Best of Good Fortune with it!!

Regards to All,

Pip01
