Call of Dudy


DVD:  Call of Dudy: Bohemian Bagpipes Across Borders
Bonus CD: Czech Bagpipe Polkas

Pel!groso Productions, 2006

Bagpipes are generally associated with the Celtic fringe of Europe, but one of the richest and most ethnically diverse bagpipe traditions can be found in Central Europe. In the Czech lands and in neighboring Bavaria this tradition once became marginalized and almost disregarded. Yet this historic musical form has survived and even managed to renew itself, to develop further on a regional scale—crossing national and linguistic borders. Call of Dudy captures the people and places that are keeping this centuries-old tradition alive today and for future generations.

DVD includes scenes featuring the following musicians and historians:

Domazlice bagpipe music in performance Herbert Gruenvald, bagpipe collector History of the Dudy discussed by Josef Rezny

Iain MacDonald, Neilston Highland Pipe and Drum Band Neil Smith, Northumberland bagpiper Mike Cwach, Czech bagpipe researcher from Yankton, South Dakota

Duration:  52'
