The breton bagad is an instrumental ensemble gathering binious "braz" (very close to the scottish highland bagpipe), bombardes (breton instrument from the family of hautboy), and drumbeat. The Kemper bagad is one of the best in Brittany and has the record for the number of titles won in national championships at Lorient.

Technique : sampling with 8 bits, mono, 11Khz. The resulting quality is middle, but files have a reasonable size. Files have also been converted from the .wav to the .au format , this adds a low distortion to the sound. Only the CD gives back the great musical quality of the Kemper bagad and the talent of its musicians.
