A Lithuanian bagpiper.

The dūdmaišis or Labonoro dūda is a Lithuanian bagpipe[1] with a single chanter and drone. The Lithuanian bagpipe was traditionally played at a variety of events, including May Day festivities,[2] and spring caroling.[3] A 1955 publication by the Lituanus Foundation noted that: "The Labanoro Dūda or Bagpipe was at one time very widely used, though it is almost forgotten."[4]
