The music of “Tautumeitas” is created by six voices and six pairs of hands, These are Latvian girls who believe that music can make the world a better place.
The participants have studied traditional singing, especially polyphony.
To present traditional music in a contemporary way and to reflect on what a contemporary “tautumeita” (folk girl) feels and thinks, the participants also use diverse music instruments. Most of the participants have studied ethnomusicology, that is why there are also musical motives from other cultures around the world.
The diversity if the timbres, a fresh approach and style create the special sound of “Tautumeitas”.
