ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
From "Ilgi marks 25 years of pushing folk's boundaries" by Egils Kaljo, published in Latvians Online, 12/14/06:

The [Speleju dancoju] story itself is rather simple. Zemgus and Lelde are about to be married. A motley band of characters arrives at their wedding celebration, led by a blind man and Tots the musician. Suddenly Lelde is attacked and drained of blood, and is near death. Tots, being rather taken with the about-to-be-married Lelde, decides to go amongst the dead to find out what has happened and to help return Lelde back to life. He succeeds and brings her back, and the last step is for someone to give their blood to bring Lelde back to life. After his long, solitary struggle, Tots loses the girl to the other guy and is the one who has to give his blood and die. However, as the blind man tells him, he does get second prize, which is that his songs will live forever after he is gone. Small consolation!

The music and lyrics fit wonderfully with one another, and the final portion of the album, with Lelde returning to life and Tots realizing that his end is near, provide a tragically beautiful end to the whole affair.
