Preparations for the Kaba Gaida Competition at Gela 2013

Few weeks remain to the competition. This year it will be on 3th and 4th of August.

Probably most of the participants are playing everyday, all day long. We wish them good luck.

The competition is very important for the Kaba gaida community:

  • popularises the instrument and the music
  • the beginner players can learn from the professional ones
  • good place for networking and experience sharing
  • international bagpipers come to watch
  • great performances can be heard
These are the reasons KabaGaida.com is sponsoring the competition this year.

One of our targets is to record the competition and to make it public on YouTube. Unfortunately we do not have a camera and camera man, so if somebody is going to record, please contact us.

Happy birthday www.KabaGaida.com for a very first time


For our first birthday (19.01) I would like to highlight our achievements for the past year:
- Fully functional web site with 81 facebook fans
- More than 25 songs and dance fragments (sitnezhi) notated for Kaba Gaida, uploaded for free download on the site
- 5 people got help from us to get quality Kaba Gaida abroad
- We started to write a Kaba Gaida handbook (http://bit.ly/149PxE6) for all the people that want to learn about Kaba Gaida
- We created a band www.Gaidunica.com to support the project
- 75$ of donations (which means a lot to us. Than you!)

Big thanks to (random order): Kostadin and Hristo Gerdzhikovi, Yanko Marangozov, Nikolai Beliashki, Valentina Dobreva and all the people that support us!

What we want for the new year is to continue these activities and:
- upload at least 100 songs for free download
- upload instructions on how to learn playing from scores
- finish the Kaba Gaida Handbook
- go to http://www.rencontresdeluthiers.org/en/accueil.php
- more and more!
