We are a singing nation that has had great wealth handed down to it, from generation to generation, as part of its heritage - thousands of folk songs, our spiritual strength.
In preparation for our Great Festival of Singing in Rīga, we wanted to highlight and to teach the most beautiful Latvian folk songs to the wider world. That's why we invited people in Rīga and visitors to the city to get involved in a unique campaign of singing together during the Rīga City Festival last year.
It turned out to be a very sincere and emotional experience for us all. We were happy that foreign visitors that we met in the streets of Rīga were interested in getting involved in our virtual choir campaign, confirming again - that although we come from different places around the world and speak in different languages, singing together unites us!
