Saule, Perkons, Daugava: Latvia




Whenever I hear this song, part of me wishes I were Latvian. This is a performance from the 2008 Latvian Song Festival.

Happy International Women's day to all who celebrate.

And now I'm off to convey my own greetings to Saule--who is showing her bright face today.

Come, Spring, come!!

Thank you. It's not the best acoustics, but the fact that everyone is in their national dress, singing their hearts out that gets me. :)
