Songs of the Shortest Night (Īsākās nakts dziesmas)

2009.06.02 00:47:31

Iļģi's new album is a contemporary interpretation of ancient Jāņi songs that will speak to and enthuse even those who have yet to realize the true meaning and magic of the summer solstice.

"Songs of the Shortest Night" is an album rich in moods and varied in sound.  It evokes emotions related to the Latvian Midsummer celebration, Jāņi.  Modern in rhythm and feel, some songs are invigorating while others serenely pause in the moment.  

The album will be premiered on Sunday June 7th at 2:30 p.m. and 8:00 p.m. at Essential Club in Rīga.  Both concerts will be broadcast live on the internet at   (Sunday June 7th, 7:30 a.m. and 1 p.m. Eastern Standard Time; 4:30 a.m. and 10 a.m. Pacific.) 

The CD release concert will be on June 13th at 1 p.m. in Rīga on the Vērmanis Park stage. 

Generous support for making the album was received from the Latvian Ministry of Culture (KKF), the Latvian Foundation, and the American Latvian Association Cultural Foundation.
