Most of the Spanish bagpipe music you'll find on YouTube is the tried and true traditional tunes from Galicia and Asturias. Every once in a while, though, you can find some real modern gaita gems – in this case, the theme songs from Game of Thrones, Lord of The Rings, and Final Fantasy VII performed on the gaita asturiana.
I just came across these cool gaita videos so of course had to share them with all of you. The artist and performer of these cover songs is Bárbara. She plays the Asturian bagpipes, piano, flute, as well as other instruments. She is also a big fan of the Final Fantasy video game series. Enjoy!

Have any YouTube videos of you performing fantasy theme songs or modern covers on your Spanish bagpipes--or any kind of bagpipes? If you do, post them on our Facebook page! We would love to see them!
