Zampogna: The soul of southern Italy

Zampogna: The soul of southern Italy — a documentary film on the Italian bagpipes, put on YouTube by the producer, so you don’t have to feel bad about watching it

This is a beautiful documentary by an Italian-American (he doesn’t have the name, but he’s part Italian) who journeyed to Italy as a lover of the Italian bagpipes to immerse himself in our shared “roots music.” If you have any curiosity at all about Italian roots music — your own heritage as well if your roots are also in southern Italy! — please watch this!

BTW, you’ve never heard so much music in 6/8 before in your life. 🙂
