During this evening you will hear happy dances and songs full of melancholy – and you will realise that the folk cultures of two countries – Latvia and Switzerland – one at the sea, one in the mountains – have similarities in many places. There will be singing, telling stories and playing Latvian national instrument kokle, as well as violin, bagpipes and drums. You will hear music that has been invented a long time ago as well as improvisations, arisen in front of the audience.
