His principal goes is "rescue" the bagpipe culture in
On April 22th, 1500 A.C, Brazil was discovered by Pedro Álvares
Cabral. In his companion, was Pero Vaz de Caminha, who wrote a letter
that told to the king of Portugal, Dom Manuel, about the discover.
Curiouslly, he describes the first european musical instrument that
was played in Brazil: the portuguese bagpipe !
So, historically, Brazil is the first country in the "New World"
(Americas) that had a bagpipe.
There are a lot of bagpipes in the world. Some of it are played
in Portugal and, till the XVIII Century, it was very popular in
the first portuguese-brazilian societies.
Maybe for less interesting, the societies after this century abondoned
this wonderful musical instrument.
So, its our (brazilian) misson, "rescue" these beautiful
musical traditions in our country.
This site, at this moment, is only in Portuguese, but has some interesting
photos of the bagpipes and others musical instruments made by Luques.
