Pozdrav.
Lep pogled ...
Dobar snimak i perspektiva, lepo pokazano mesto i trenutak.
Obratite paznju na svetlo, smanjio bih prazno nebo.
Sve najbolje u daljem radu.
Paja.

Default To tyro: Hello John

Hello John,
thank you very much for this kind and thorough comment! This instrument belongs to the same category as bagpipes, I forgot to write its name in my note, on Leros they call it "tsambouna". It must be a very old instrument invented by shepherds. Most often the musician sings a song that is interrupted when he has to add air in the "bag". Sometimes he uses the short while when his mouth is free to "sing" mocking comments about another man present and the other one has to think quick and make up a response. This can go on for a long time and it's very amusing.
Now you mention the Scottish bagpipe, the British troops that took over Leros after the Italian armistice and until the end of battle had Scotts in their ranks. Bagpipes were heard on the island every morning during the Battle to encourage the soldiers.
Thank you again!
All the best,
Ourania
