Bagpipe and drum music group Auļi was founded in 2003. A few of group members have already played in the first bagpipe group in Latvia – Dūdinieki, which was formed in 1994. Regardless of the fact that there is scare trace left of bagpipe and drum playing traditions, both instruments were mentioned in Latvian folklore materials. The music pieces reflect creative approach of the group members. Auļi`s repertoire contains dance and bagpipe melodies including tunes of other European peoples as well as drum pieces.
