The ecological music ensemble “Ducele” has completed work on its album, which contains new sounds of songs by the leader of the legendary exiled Latvian group “Three from Pardaugava” Vilnius Baumanis. The album will be available together with a book by Nora Iksten and Vilnius Baumanis about this group and will be released on October 6.
In anticipation of this important event, the ensemble “Ducele” has placed another song from the upcoming album: the video of the song “Lienite” is literally saturated with criminal elements and also a small dose of eroticism. The artist Ivars Mailītis and his wife Inese Maili-Mailīte have made a great contribution to the creation of the clip. “The video version of the song was made spontaneously, without long discussion, as free improvisation. I also wrote the script myself and in collaboration with the artist Ivars Mailitis the environment was arranged and decorated. Everyone involved in the filming process had fun! ” says the group leader Arnis Veisbārdis.
Already in October, “Ducele” offers a concert performance “Monika” based on the songs, experience and adventures of the group “Three from Pardaugava”. During this performance you will be able to buy the latest recording of “Ducele” with songs by Vilnius Baumanis, as well as Nora Iksten’s book about the group “Three from Pardaugava”. Screenwriter and director of the concert performance – Viktors Runtulis. The first concert of the tour is scheduled for October 9 at the Valmiera Culture Center, but after that the ensemble plans to visit 14 more cultural houses or centers. The tour ends on November 29 at Viesīte Culture Palace.
