Though the cornerstone of Uilleann piping may be found in the British Isles’ colorful Celtic culture, the commonly termed bagpipes have ventured far and wide, making themselves quite comfortable not only in traditional and contemporized Celtic musics, Scottish weddings, and wakes, but in indie-rock, inspirational, world, and New Age styles. An example of the latter is that of Jose Angel Hevia Velasco and his release Tierra de Nadie. As a young boy coming of age in Spain, Hevia forsook competitive cycling for piping, studying the Asturian bagpipe with a master. Having played often and well since his boyhood studies, Hevia here takes up the electronic bagpipes as well as the low whistle, forging a highly polished and reflective blend with his band, which includes bouzouki, bodhran, violin, electric guitar, and electronic programming. Not for purists, Hevia’s beat-driven concoction will prove tasty to adventurous dance, New Age, and international music enthusiasts.

Hi Quietmusic,
Nice to meet you. I think it’s a good idea of trading links because I don’t have to upload the same albums. You can use any links from my blog.

I have this CD and love for (imagine this!) those quiet moments with a nice brandy or glass of wine at the end of a rough day. I also am a big fan of David Lanz whom you featured in earlier posts.

I have added you to my BlogRoll and subscribed.

I recommend the Hevia CD for anyone who has been thinking about venturing out into “world” music styles. Another international artist I have enjoyed is Deva Premal. Although American by birth, she is a vocalist who specializes in the music of India and the Mediterranean cultures.

Excellent suggestion! I’ll have to see if I can find some of her stuff. Thank you!
