The album "Reflections of the Latvian Spirit" is an exposure of the Latvian soul, passion, happiness and sorrow everywhere in the world, it will touch people’s hearts and make them sing, dance and love Latvian mentality.
LATVIA is the heart of the Baltic States (Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania) and is located in North-eastern Europe on the east coast of the Baltic Sea – Amber Sea with the population of just a little more than 2 million. It is a country with unique culture, nature and history and its own Latvian language.
Folk Songs (Dainas) are the Symbol of Latvian Culture and they are the very embodiment of its cultural heritage, left by forefathers whom history had denied other, more tangible forms of expression.
The Latvians call themselves a nation of singers but to the Latvian, the "Daina" is not just any commonly sung popular song. It is classically defined as a song in quatrain form that is specifically Latvian in its structure, sentiments and worldview. Dating back well over a thousand years, there are more than 1.2 million texts and 30,000 melodies around.
It would be difficult to find another nation in Europe that so rightfully deserves to be called the nation of poets; it would be equally difficult to find another country that deserves to be called the land of poetry as much as the homeland of the Latvians… Every Latvian is a born poet, they all compose verses and songs, and they can all sing these songs.
"Reflections of the Latvian Spirit" introduces the world to the gorgeous and delightful Latvian folk tunes as well as rich and prosperous Latvian soul.
