Folklore group "ABRA" – Latvia

The folklore group "ABRA" has played together since 2005, but its members are experienced musicians from other groups in Latvia.
The group plays mainly instrumental music, using latvian traditional ancient instruments – bagpipes, whole wooden drums, kokles, pipes, flutes etc. The way of playing is very close to traditional, authentic as well as our nowdays interpretation. Repertoire is based on the traditional folkmusic developed over several centuries, including different melodies of latvian traditional songs and dances. Some of them are accompaned with singing and dancing.
Most of instruments and costumes are made by members of the group, according to historical materials.
"ABRA" is regular participant of international and national festivals and events.
At the moment there are five members in the group.
