Celtic and folk music band Cisalpipers, from Center-North region of Italy Emilia-Romagna, formed in the fall of 2004.
It basically originated from the passion for bagpipes and a careful research in the vast historical and musical popular and traditional repertoire of Central and Northern Europe, including Italy.
The Cisalpipers repertoire includes original compositions (testifying the band’s unique sound, based primarily on its components various musical experiences, from classical to pop, from world music to ethnic) and traditional tunes, played with Emilian Bagpipe, Scottish Bagpipe, Whistles, Drums and Percussions.
Cisalpipers music is a journey through centuries, touching on distant eras which have been lost, though each one of us, deep in his soul, can still feel those smells, sounds and visions.
A brilliant and innovative band, suitable for any kind of audiences, even for those who have forgotten certain sounds, or who simply have never heard them.
Cisalpipers perform as acoustic marching band or in a full concert lineup (with vocals, piano, keyboards, bass and drums adding to traditional bagpipes, whistles and percussions).

Chiara Temporin – Emilian Bagpipe, Great Highland Bagpipe, Low and Tin Whistles
