The band consists of 10 players: 1 electric cello; 6 Latvian Bagpipes and 3 Traditional drummers. Bagpipe and drum music group Auļi was founded in 2003 in Riga, Latvia. Regardless of the fact that there is scare trace left of bagpipe and drum playing traditions in Latvia, both instruments were mentioned in materials of Latvian folklore.

Based on their own research and experience, Auļi has developed the perception of Latvian bagpipes, their tunes and possibilities as well as combined this sound with the rhythm and beat of different kinds of drums, including one of the biggest tree trunk drums in the Baltics.
