Spells and Charms from Ancient Times (Folk / Contemporary)
The charming ensembles CAMERATA VARIABILE BASEL (Switzerland) and PUTNI (Latvia) invite you to an archaic sound ritual – an extensive work by Swiss composer HELENA WINKELMAN, based on both Latvian and Swiss ancient folk texts. Eight strong and pure women voices, medieval Swiss folk instruments, various percussions, elements of Swiss folk dance, jazz, contemporary music and Latvian a cappella songs are organically intertwined in the glorious flow of images and moods.
