In early May,
Ansis Ataols Berzins
in Riga took the wraps off a Web site that's been needed for
quite some time. His folklora.lv
explores Latvian folklore,
particularly music, and serves as a valuable and growing resource.
Readers can learn about different traditional instruments, various
folklore ensembles, and upcoming events.
Readers also can download MP3 files
of various folk songs. Still under development is a section that
Latvian school instructors might find useful, focusing on how to teach
Latvian culture. Information is presented using dynamic fonts and is
available in Latvian, English and Russian. The folklora.lv site received
support from the Soros Fund of Latvia.
