The scheduled autumn concert of the World Music Festival "PORTA" on October 23rd, at the Music Hall "Daile" has been moved to August 20th, 2022 to the Ethnographic Open-Air Museum of Latvia.
The organizers of the festival have always appreciated the opportunity to create music events in Latvia, in which both listeners and artists have the opportunity to be equally important. Therefore the special energy that PORTA embodies derives from the spectators' shining and thoughtful glances, stormy applause and intermission conversations so rich, full with vivid emotions. It also comes from performing artists’ demonstrations of unique characteristics their nations have been built upon, each telling an honest and exciting musical stories through melodies like no other.
Preserving these important elements of the festival, as well as still remembering so very recent joyful emotions that live music offers, which we enjoyed together with our home performers - Raxtu Raxti and Saulkrasti mixed choir ANIMA, as well as the the ever captivating Eivør at the Open-Air Museum, we will recreate the feeling of a summer festival with a bit more of drive and power already in August next year, when we hope to be together in greater numbers, without worries of the restrictions the pandemic creates.
Tickets purchased for this year's autumn concert are valid for next year's summer concert!
As previously reported, the audience members of the festival will be able to discover the Finnish music duo Wimme & Rinne in a new light, where they will perform music combining the Sámi joking style with electronic and experimental jazz. In turn, six men from the Franco-Italian group Lalala Napoli will allow you to feel both the rhythms of tarantella and spiritual music stories, with uncontrollable energy and musical generosity that draws each listener to a celebration full of friendship and life.
Summer deserves a taste of freedom and being carefree, therefore the World Music Festival PORTA will offer an even richer program with artists from Latvia and other countries to enjoy new musical meetings, exciting collaborations and a couple of premieres.
We will announce the artistic additions to the program gradually till the beginning of next summer. Look out for new updates and may there be a live music energy to your every step!
