Compilation “Our Songs 2.0” is one of the grandest events in Latvia of the year 2017. Firstly, applaudable is the initiative of Museum of Latvian Literature and Music to invite young Latvian composers and musicians to make their own versions of iconic Latvian songs from folkmusic, choir music and popmusic repertoire.
Secondly, the result is stunning because these old, beloved and in a way banal songs with a great symbolic value has been remade into original compositions that sounds very contemporary.
This compilation also gives insight into the aesthetics of modern Latvian music.
