“It’s hard to even believe that we have already met for the 23rd time in the finals of “Music Bank”. This is a survey that inspires not only well-known musicians to improve and act, but also those who have started their musical career relatively recently. I wish everyone a creative and musically beautiful next season of “Musical Bank”, said Kaspars Mauriņš, director of Latvian Radio 2.

The final of “Music Bank” takes place in Latgale, and this is especially important at this time, when doubts are being sown about the values ​​embodied by Latgale. The gathering of the most popular Latvian performers in Daugavpils is a sign that Latgale is and will be one of the stars in the Freedom Monument,” said Anita Brauna, editor-in-chief of Latvian Radio, at the “Music Bank” award ceremony.

How were the songs ranked by the experts and the musicians themselves?

If only a panel of experts judged, then the first place would go to “By the river” performed by Shipsea, the second place to the song “Lieka stuka” by the group “Citi Zēni”, and the third place would be taken by the group “The Sound Poets” with the composition “Pie vienas uņu”.

On the other hand, the musicians themselves – the performers of the 15 most valuable songs of the final show – put “The Sound Poets” song “Pie jenas ugunsi” in the first place, “Lieka stuka” performed by “Citi Zēni” in the second place, and according to the musicians, Shipsea’s “Pie upes” deserves the third place “.
