Latvian ballads and drinking songs,
with Laila Salins, Bill Schimmel, accordion, Jim Matus, laoutar,
“Laila Salins' Saskandinot crosses all the old barriers to open a door to the riches of a culture where deep, ancient and ancestral strains meet the contemporary worlds of folk and popular music, all in a mix that is as true to its roots as it is original, moving and articulate for our latter day."
Eric Salzman (composer, producer, and author of 20th Century Music: An Introduction)
