If the pipers were playing “Green Hills of Tyrol”, then a group of Sri Lankans would be playing a tune about a Swiss gentleman fighting against the Austrians, composed by an Italian and played on an instrument proliferated from Scotland but left behind by the Romans as a joke…… using Bagpipes possibly made in Pakistan.
Can’t get much more International than that?
