The bagpipe and drum music group “Auļi” was founded in 2003 in Riga, Latvia. The group that consists of six bagpipers, three drummers and one bass player, creates unique sounds by mixing ancient and modern elements. Musicians themselves have named their music style etnotranss (ethnic trance). While getting inspired by the nature and melodies of ancient Latvian folk music, they create new compositions filled with the energy of rock and dynamics of the world music.
Auli have relesed 6 Albums and 4 of them won Latvian music awards as the best world/folk music album of the year (2007, 2010, 2013, 2017).
