Beautiful music... It resembles our Macedonian bagpape and drum music:

There are many similarities between Scottish and Macedonian people, although they have very different history, during all the time since antiquity. Maybe this is due to the fact that both these two nations draw their roots from very ancient times and their real history is not studied so well as the history of the big civilizations of ancient times in Europe, like the Greeks and Romans. But in the last decades some research has been done and very interesting thing are coming to light about other populations of antiquity, almost unknown up today.

I agree Belo More... And I also think that both Macedonians and Scottish are proud of our real cultural heritage. We do not pretend to be something that we are not, trying to live up to the expectations of the Bavarian king.

Bagpipes were a common folk instrument all over Europe, but during the 19th century revival our southern neighbors discarded whatever they believed (or were told) is a non-noble, peasant, culture... And they fashioned themselves into a new and "improved" Neo-Helenic culture, dicarding and losing their true and native culture. That is so sad.
