The renowned Latvian folklore group "Ilgi" has scored another success - its latest album "Tur saulite perties gaja" is Number 4 on the World Music Charts Europe Top 20 for the month of March.

Ilga Reizniece, the group's longtime leader, commented that "April 1 brought us a pleasant surprise, and this is no April Fool's joke. We feel highly honored for the praise and the rating, especially since it all came about via cooperation with Latvia's "Upe tuviem un taliem", not some major European label."

Previously, in 2006, "Ilgi" remained on the charts for four months, reaching Number 2 with its album "Ne uz vienu dienu".
