Portuguese and European Bagpipes

Although Portugal has huge bagpipe traditions, only the Galician Gaita became well known in Europe. What people call Gaita, is actually an array of traditional bagpipes, very popular outside the Galicia province, across the border in Minho, in the uplands of Miranda and all through out the Portuguese Atlantic coast. The Northwestern Iberian Gaitas will give you a beautiful variety of looks and sounds to choose from.

* Gaitas is the common name used for the array of Iberian bagpipes.
