Latvian Dancing Queens

One of the most noteworthy events in Latvia's cultural life is undeniably the Song and Dance Celebration taking part once in five years since 1873. This is a major event involving thousands of participants from all over Latvia. The Song and Dance Celebration has also been included in the UNESCO Listof the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity.
The tradition of folk dancing and choral music is very strong in Latvia. We can even say that almost every Latvian is, or has once been singing in a choir. Thus for almost a century an a half, every five years this tradition reaches its culmination when, following a selection of the best choirs and dance groups, the most outstanding singers and dancers gather in Riga. This is a festival also for Riga, as for the entire week the city lives in time with Latvian folk song and in a swirl of Latvian folk dance.
The festivities bring together more than 30 000 participants – singers, dancers, wind orchestra musicians, folklore groups, amateur theatres, studios of applied and fine arts, and others.

Home studio

Playing with a new flash light in the living room, but the  dream about mine own  mini  studio comes closer and closer. It will be not only mine, but we will work together. Me- more focused on  the creative side and marketing, but Mario more involved in the technical aspects and website. So, I assume in the future it will not be gunadesign, but guna&mario
