Talk – musical performance focusing on pirts as the subject in Latvian dainas (folksongs). Did people sing them as they wandered into the woods or meadows or was singing a way to prepare for pirts? To what extent were dainas a part of the pirts practice? How much dainas are heard inside the pirts or outside it, as we relax in nature and celebrate our traditions.
You are invited to this talk by Ilga Reizniece and Māris Muktupavels – founders and members of the folk music group „Iļģi”, musicians and folklore experts.
