Children of Mountains [Latvia]

The performance of the children from Latvia was the main attraction of the second day of the 'Children of Mountains'. We enjoyed this show - it was full of passion and joy:)
The ensemble of 'Zelta sietiņš' came from Riga. It is the largest children's folk group in Latvia which was established in 1958. The name of the ensemble means 'the Gold Strainer' ("Złote Sitko").

Widzę, że macie ciekawą imprezę folklorystyczną :)
Tyle, że gdzie oni mają te góry??? 8-O

PS.
Góry są mniej ważne od dobrej zabawy ;)

Litwa jest północy, czyli na górze i wszystko się zgadza ;-)

@PAK @Joo @Fio - ten zespół jest z Łotwy:) Nie ma tam gór, ale ten zespół uratował festiwal (podobnie jak Słowacy) bo nie mogli przyjechać Kenijczycy i Argentyńczycy i zostali zastąpieni właśnie przez Łotyszy i Słowaków:)
Thanks for all your visits and comments!
