Iļģi / Latvia

Latvia’s leaders and pioneers of post-folklore, our land’s best-known world music band Iļģi !

IĻĢI have been mutually energizing themselves and their audiences for three decades now. The wonderful energy of their live concerts keeps attracting new musicians and their listeners.  And keeps the band members forever young at heart..

The band’s latest Tur saulīte pērties gāja garnered IĻĢI the Latvian 2011 Album of the Year as well as made the 2012 World Music Charts Europe Top 20 list at Number 4.

IĻĢI are doubtless Latvia’s most famous world music folkband outside their homeland.
