The Bagpipe is a special aerophone comprising a melodic pipe and generally another - the pedal -, both with reeds that make the sound of the blown air. In the old times it was used by the shepherd in nativity sets. The bag was made of kid skin but nowadays it is made of rubber covered in cloth. Although it is used in the northwest coast, the use of the bagpipes as grazing season instrument is only maintained in Trás-os-Montes.
