Improvisation on Whistle + Bodhrán and Drone
As the descriptive title says, with a nod to both urlar and alap traditions of Scotland and India. The Alap is the opening section of a typical North Indian classical performance. It is a form of melodic improvisation that introduces the raag. The Urlar (or Ground, or Theme) is the opening section in Scottish Piobaireachd. Though today the Scottish tradition contains no improvised or extemporised aspect, I do suspect it once did.
