Album Notes
The hypnotic melodies, complex time signatures, and raw physicality of Kaynak Pipers Band’s kaba gaida music will forever change the way you think of the bagpipe and bagpipe music. Kaba gaida, the Rhodope Mountains bagpipe, is a distinctive symbol of folk music in Bulgaria, having retained its original form, sound and purpose. Kaynak Pipers Band continues in the centuries-old traditions of gaida performance, accompanying weddings and other village celebrations, playing rhythms that astounded Bartok and infectious melodies that distill myriad central Asian and middle eastern influences into Bulgaria’s own unique culture. The band’s appearance at MIT is part of their first US tour, an effort to make kaba gaida accessible to more people globally, while exposing the Boston community to the progressive musical qualities of this traditional form, which creates an avant-garde compositional experience of their folk roots.

The kaba gaida, the Rhodope Mountains bagpipe, is one of the most distinctive symbols of the folklore music in Bulgaria. Spread in the small region of the Central Rhodope mountains, the home of Orpheus, its repertoire retains tunes and songs from the ancient times. The natural materials used—wood, horn, skin and cotton—and the way it is made provide the specific voice and vibration of the gaida in the tunes and the ornamentation used.

As a proof of the importance of the gaida for all the nation and the world the song Izlel e Delio Haidutin is included in the Voyager Golden Record, among the sounds and images selected to portray the diversity of life and culture on Earth deployed on a Voyager spacecraft launched in 1977. The Guinness World Record for largest bagpipe ensemble is held by the kaba gaida and 333 participants.
