Music

Latvians are called a 'singing nation'  for good reason! The age-old singing tradition is reflected in the rich heritage of Latvian folklore with its collection of more than 1.2 million 'dainas' or folk songs.  The major Song and Dance festivals  feature  the so-called "choir wars", with the participation of 13,000 singers.

Attend the numerous music festivals held in Latvia, starting from pop music to jazz  to opera, and feel the Latvians' passion for music.
