The Pipes Are Calling Resistance Is Futile
Celtic music has indeed had a recent surge in popularity around the world. This is due to the richness of the old and traditional combined with the excitement of the new and modern. As MacTalla's lead piper Jesse O said, "over the last few years, the Great Highland Bagpipes have started to become incorporated into the contemporary music scene. Main stream acts such as Madonna now feature bagpipes while on tour. MacTalla Mor is one of the Celtic bands helping to revolutionize the use of the instrument". MacTalla Mor's lead singer Ilana adds that "traditional Gaelic singing provides audiences a soulful link to the past. The combined use of ancient instruments and singing alongside contemporary beats and styles provide audiences of all ages with a widely eclectic and increasingly exciting new sound experience".
