Strazds & Peters: Linen (19/10/2015)
''A Latvian is like a piece of linen- rough, grey, durable and solid. The songs in the cycle ''Linen'' are about the 21st Century Latvian- about his doubts, choices, about escape and responsibility, about the love of nature and the fatherland. In the songs can be found today's Latvia, in which, along with patriotism and pride of one's country, there is no shortage of fears, bewilderment, challenges, contradictions and mistakes. In my opinion nowadays, when the world is becoming smaller and all borders are flowing together and disappearing, it is important to talk about what is Latvian, about the special things which are within us. Latvians.''
- Composer Jānis Strazds
The book costs 6 EUR. A CD of the songs is also available in the Musica Baltica shop.
