Grodi 15'th anniversary,

      On Friday, November 29, within bounds of the International folk music festival Live music, in the Gold hall of Riga Latvian society the 15'th anniversary of folklore group Grodi was celebrated.

Grodi

      Grodi have performed the firsts (with summer songs). They sang silently, maybe because of hope on intensifying properties of microphones, or maybe because of November cold. It is pleasant, that all participants began to sing some songs.

The musicians from Viljandi

      As the anniversary passed within bounds of the festival, the foreign participants of the festival performed too. The firsts played young Estonian musicians from Viljandi Folk music college. It was felt, that it is not an ensemble - they are not achieved a good interplay, however, everyone itself is a very good musician: the girl - bag-pipe player, the lad - accordion player and the girl - squeeze-box player.

Vódraga

      The last has performed Vydraga from Vilnius, Lithuania. There was much of participants (5 persons), and they played with a big ardour (two violins, bag-pipe, bandonia, bass, psaltery).
      After congratulations, flowers, and entertainments with a big pretzel and red vine, the musicians have begun to play dances. It was an especial pleasure to observe, how the musicians played together, how the music sounded and the eyes sparkled.
