Valdis and Ruta Muktupaveli are highly accomplished musicians and scholars. They have been performing the culturally unique program “My Brothers in White” to Latvian and foreign audiences for several years now, but the concert tour organized by TILTS in November will be their first in North America. In their own words, the concert program is “a dedication to ancient and contemporary Baltic peoples - Latgalians, Selians, Zemgalians, Lithuanians, Yatvingians, Courlanders and Prussians. Vocal and instrumental music from the Baltic lands of Latvia, Lithuania and Eastern Prussia are at the core of our compositions. The presentation will feature ritual, customary and mythological songs, as well as instrumental meditations and collaborations. The music combines ancient traditional melodies with our own original works, creating an unforgettable musical experience celebrating the enchanting and vibrant music of ancient Baltic tribes.”

Also Iveta Vaivode’s exhibit “Sword Lilies” a series that visually explores the cultural heritage of Latgale. She is one of the most well-known photographers in Latvia.
