      I just has returned from Ventspils, where today passed first review for the festival Baltica'03. Six groups took part in it: Laipa, Sītava, Kāndla, suits from Jurkalne, Alshvanga and Gudenieki, and also Russian folklore ensemble Čńņīźč. Ensembles was performed in the same order.

Laipa

      Laipa has presented the subject of the festival ("ground") in a very interesting way: they offered a travel to different lands (in Latvian the word "zeme" means both "ground" and "land"). They have visited Kurland, Lifland, Lithuanland, they came to Germanland before Sun. At the end they sang about Russia and have returned home.
