After days of heavy rain, the clouds gave a break for the night. With the full moon up in the sky, the night couldn´t be better for an open-air concert which is focused mainly in the enviromente (latvian culture and folk is strongly linked to the nature, Līgo times is precisely one of the strongest moments where you can notice that).
So the event was composed from three parts, basically, in a quite big size in a place, which by the way, is not other place but the scenary that saw born the "Song and dance festival" more than one hundred of years ago, the most iconic and important attraction that you can find in Latvia related to its culture (noticing also how much they do like singing and dancing, as the most popular celebration is related with it):
Here we have the musicians with the main vocalist on stage...
...and the wide number of dancers.
The public was overcrown but it´s really worth of it! A concert to remember. The music was very powerful, althought I´m not sure until which level the bagpipe is related to folk of Latvia but it was very wonderful. And the dancing as well. Which, by the way, they represented Līgo at finest:
even that moment related going to find the fern flower on pairs and having a lovely night.
With my "not the best camera of the world" instrument I recorded several moments of the concert which I think talk better than me and you can see (I hope you can) the wonderfulness of the composition itself. And also, don´t forget the music, quality is not good but you get the idea about how good the songs were in several cases (I love bagpipe):
Moments to show the coordination and long hours behind practicing.
And the music, check it out:
I apologize about the not good quality, seriously. Here´s the dances show in general topics about spring, sun and good times to even young warriors:
Easily the best concert I have come so far in my stay in Latvia. Totally wonder!
