Dzīsme

      In the beginning in together have performed two folklore ensembles of Daugavpils Latvian society - Dzīsme and Dzīsmeite. Sang, danced and played both olds and youngs. The big number of participants and the high quality of the musical performance have produced a very good impression. However, in performance were some very scenic elements, probably, because of academic musical education of group's leader.

Nicgale folklore ensemble

      Nicgale folklore ensemble sang about course of life. Despite of some academical arrangements, the performance was good. Both in women and men was a pleasure of participation and singing.

Rūžeņas

      The next, with songs of haymaking, performed Naujene folklore ensemble Rūžeņas. The leader of ensemble has very strong and loud voice, therefore the whole ensemble sounded well.

Dubna folklore ensemble

      Dubna folklore ensemble began to prepare to the review only a month ago - because of change of chief. Therefore it was impossible to reach a good level. Unfortunately, the new leader does not know the tradition yet, so she should learn a lot.

Vishki folklore ensemble

      Vishki folklore ensemble began the performance with a patriotic Latgalian poem, told in roles. Through poem the group came to the subject of the festival - ground, the songs were about different displays of it. Though in group were some choral voices, all in all they sang well.

Svātra

      The concert was finished by hosts - folklore ensemble of the Daugavpils district's Culture house Svātra. The ensemble executed postfolklore (world music) of a good level: sonorous many-voicing, good playing on psaltery, violin, guimbarde, pipe.
