Latvian Bagpipe and Drum music group

Lai māsiņa rotājās

Drum and bagpipe group "Auļi" and ethno music group "Tautumeitas" have joined forces to create a unique music album " Lai māsiņa rotājās". Albums theme is dedicated to a very important period of person's life - marriage and wedding. The powerful sounds of "Auļi"'s bagpipes and drums represent masculinity, whilst "Tautumeitas" softer sound but still expressive multipart singing represent femininity. Just as newly weds need to learn how to live together after the wedding, "Auļi" and "Tautumeitas" search for ways in which to respect and compliment each other on their musical journey.
