monday music: busindre reel

When four-year-old José Ángel Hevia Velasco saw a bagpipe player in a procession, the unity between the player and his instrument seemed to have a magical quality. Since then Hevia has spent a lifetime mastering this instrument, teaching others to play it, and managing a factory where the instruments are made.

Here he creates his own bagpipe magic in his best-known composition, Busindre Reel.

Note: Publication of this post was delayed due to a family emergency, but I've kept the Monday 12:01 date/time for the sake of consistency.
