A folk tale is like a small model of the world, like a map the hero must follow as he heads towards hir trials in life. For this reason Pērkonvīri often include this genre of narrative folklore in their performances. There are a few opportunities in the modern world to hear a genuine, unrehearsed telling of a tale. Such a narrative can be heard on the CD, and the liner notes contain commentaries on the tale by experts in the field. May the story serve as inspiration for listeners to realise and appreciate the wealth they hold!
