Folk music concert,
17 October 2002
On Thursday, October 17 in the Small hall of Riga Technical university
a concert of folk music was held, where took part folklore ensembles
Visi vēji, Laiksne
New and pleasantly fresh group Visi vēji
(All winds) began a concert by several melodies not heard before.
The participants of the group are known from Dance club
and Folk music center's folklore club. The manner of performance of the group
characterizes a plenty of musical instruments - everybody plays something.
It seems, the participants do not trust to their voices.
Laiksne also has performed many new songs. Is felt, that creative
searches have not run low. It would be desirable to see more attractiveness.
Latgalian repertuar is partially replaced by Zemgalian (Skaistkalne).
Auri, I think, grows up too. The command, tempered in long-term
joint work, has kept its identity. It seems, the role of girls is strongly
increased. Generally - quiet and spiritual group. Has it a foreign influence?
