Here are some pieces to drive the sleep from your eyes and wake you up properly this Sunday morning. They're bagpipe renditions (with frequent collaboration from other instruments) of well-known tunes, plus one that's new to me. A "pop bagpiper" calling herself The Snake Charmer, an Indian lady who taught herself to play the pipes, has an extensive collection of them on her YouTube channel. She says of herself:
My name is Archy J, i play the Bagpipes, im from India.
Awarded by the President of India as "India's First Professional Female Bagpiper". I am a self taught musician and hence do not play by any rules ;)
Everything you did not know or see a Bagpipe could do, is here on my channel. I make unique versions of popular songs, movie themes, anime openings, metal songs on the Bagpipes. I play an electronic Bagpipe to be able to transcend over different genres of music & has much less limitations.
Being self taught was one of the toughest thing to do for me, as i didnt have a teacher here but my determination and passion for this instrument sailed me through the impossible.
This is the only "JOB" i do, and i rely on music for my income. So if you'd like to support me please try to buy my songs from iTunes, Google play or Stream it on Spotify.

First, here's a medley of "Shipping Up To Boston" by the Dropkick Murphys, and "Enter Sandman" by Metallica.
Next, on bagpipe and cello, one of the theme songs from the "Pirates of the Caribbean" franchise.
Here's the 1980's dystopian hit, "The Final Countdown".
And, to conclude, here's a real foot-tapper: a blend of Irish and Punjabi music, with a little rap thrown in. Weird, but fun!
