The participants of the folklore group “Lāns” research Latvian folklore material and arrange the discovered treasures with their traditional instruments, like the ģīga, the Jewish harp, the kokle which retain the ancient sound of the songs. In 2007 the first album of “Lāns” is released with songs about wedding and marriage from different places in Latvia.
