Biruta Ozoliņa and Uģis Prauliņš. Ethno-duet

Chamber Hall’s series PERSONALLY

The meeting of Biruta Ozoliņa and Uģis Prauliņš voices with kokle, as well as electronics sounds on the stage may seem an ancient memory, as they both once participated in the new wave of folklore in Latvia, but this electro-acoustic ethno-duet is a brand new project. In their music the duet creatively uses folklore elements of the regions of Latvia, ambient and academic music, as well as jazz and rock elements.

In Liepaja, the ethno-duet with its concert programme “Identities” will take the audience on a retrospective journey, commemorating and singing early songs of the nations living in the regions of Latvia – Livs, Leivs, Latgalians and others. They will be based on stories of different and similar, friendly and sometimes harsher people, who still live their lives in the folk songs.

Biruta Ozoliņa is Latvian and especially Latgalian folk singer, kokle player, and one of the leading authorities in the contemporary folklore movement. She is characterised by her unique voice, as well as the scope of personal experience combined with piano-like kokle playing techniques. Uģis Prauliņš is known as a talented composer, who has played in various formations of the legendary seventies – progressive rock bands “Salve”, “Vecās Mājas”, student folklore band “Bizīteri”, has participated in recordings and concerts of post-folklore band “Iļģi”. For his composition – The Nightingale – he was nominated for the Grammy Award.

Biruta Ozoliņa – voice and kokle, Uģis Prauliņš – keyboard instruments.
