Ilgi - Seju Veju (Latvia 2000) @320

"...pure "postmodern folklore" by the group Ilgi. Steeped in tradition, these performers also are no strangers to rock; along with traditional Latvian instruments, you will hear percussion, guitars, accordions, electric bass and youthful sensibilities in touch with both the 15th and 21st centuries... Ilgi's distinct Latvian verses offer linguistic rhythms and punctuation that perfectly complement the accompanying instruments, whether the traditional bagpipe or the backbeat of bass guitar and trap drums. One could reach and compare the sound to other familiar European folk-rock bands but that would shortchange this well-executed album."
- Dick Dorsett, RootsWorld

Ilga Reizniece: lead vocals, violin
Maris Muktupavels: backing vocals, piper and kokle
Gatis Gaujinieks: bass, back-up vocals
Egons Kronbergs: guitar
Vilnis Strods: drums
