School of Ethnographical Singing

      Since January, 2005 the Riga Folk Music Society with a financial support of the Fund of the Culture Capital organizes classes of the school of ethnographical singing.
      The school of ethnographical singing is an opportunity to experiment together. That is, the organizers of the school can not guarantee, that by attending classes you will learn all subtleties of the ethnographical singing. But they try to supply a mental and a physical space, in which there is an opportunity to think, to search, to ask questions, to learn, and the main thing - to sing so ethnographically as each of us can. The purpose of school is development of understanding of different local singing traditions, and learning some of them. But it is necessary to realize, that it will be possible to learn only insignificant part of this stuff.
      The program of the school is divided into three parts. First is the theory. By lectures and discussions participants try to understand, what is the ethnographical singing, what local traditions are fixed in Latvia etc. Second part - laboratory of sounds, in which people try to derive from themselves characteristic traditional singing sounds. Third - meetings with a local tradition's holder.
