In the summer of 2020, partly spending his time in Liepaja, a musician Ralph Eilands in collaboration with “Liepaja Music Orchestra” and its artistic director Jānis Ivuškāns created a new song “Soulfulman”, which this fall is offered to listeners along with its video.

The lyrics of the song are the work of musician Ralph Eiland, but the musical material was created in collaboration with composer and producer Reini Briģis, as well as the leader of the “Liepaja Music Orchestra” Jānis Ivuškāns, who created a special arrangement for the orchestra. The video was filmed in Liepāja Hotel “Fontaine Hotel” under the direction of video artist Indulis Pelnēns. Sound recording direction is entrusted to Dainis Melnik.
The idea contained in the song and the video clip expresses the idea of the various opportunities we face every day, and the only way to bring these opportunities into your life is to simply open the door to them. Musicians of “Liepaja Music Orchestra” have participated in the creation of the video clip and sound recording of the song: Jānis Ivuškāns (trumpet), Ritvars Garoza (keyboards), Mārtiņš Zālīte (bass), Kristaps Vītols Vītoliņš (guitar), Andris Žabris (drums), Rolf ), Artūrs Hrustaļovs (trombone), Katrīne Sabīne Kalniņa (baritone saxophone), Edgars Ermansons (trumpet), Anna Marija Kukuka, Laura Liepiņa, Kate Kronberga, Monta Norkuse, Annija Andija Kolerta, as well as Raimonds Golubkovs.
The collaboration between Ralph Eiland and the people of Liepaja started earlier, when together with the trumpet player and the artistic director of the “Liepaja Music Orchestra” Jānis Ivuškāns, several large-scale music projects and major concerts were performed and staged.
This summer, the collaboration between Ralph Eyland, the association “Gingercat” and LMO has manifested itself in the creative lifestyle day festival “Get Up, Let’s GRŪV!” culminating in a concert in Julianna’s yard, together performed in one of the “Liepaja Lake Music” cycle concerts on the water, as well as soon with the support of the State Cultural Capital Fund program “School Bag Content Creation” will be created and offered to young audiences musical poetic performance “No Escape”.
