Minimalistic meditations, ethno-jazz, ethno-baroque, intuitive and composed ensembles, joyous and enthusiastic variations inspired by ancient traditions, conservative authenticity and avantgarde experiments – the contemporary essence of the kokle is offered to the listeners on this album. For the first time, all types of kokle have been brought together in one place: traditional, modernised (or concert), ethno and electric. The musicians – well-known kokle players from Latvia and beyond its borders – present their music and ponder the development of the instrument and its significance to people today.
