Piping Film Festival at the GFT

This year the Glasgow Film Theatre will be screening Call of Dudy as part of this years Glasgow International Piping Festival

 

Bagpipes ("dudy" in Czech) 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 which are keeping this centuries-old tradition alive today and for future generations.
