Celtic Galicia: The bagpipe, which the Galicians call "gaita galega," ("Galician gaita" in Galician) is a staple in all of Galicia's fiestas. It's similar to the bagpipes found in Scotland Ireland, but w/ some subtle differences. The "drones" (which produce the sound) are different in type number to the British Irish, as are the ways in which the pipes are carried displayed. Galician "gaitas" have only 3 drones the colors patterns of the fabric reflect those of Celtic Galicia.
