This superb publication – a bilingual selection of Latvian and Spanish folk songs – is the result of collaboration with the Spanish Embassy in Latvia.

Part I includes two prefaces: Professor Vaira Vīķe-Freiberga in her “The Nation’s Lyrical Poetry” focuses on Latvian folk songs or dainas, while Professor Dámaso López García’s “Discovery of the Traditional Poetry of the Spanish People” deals with the significance of folk songs in Spanish culture.

Part II comprises a selection of Latvian and Spanish folk songs split into six themes.

The publication is adorned with reproductions of works by Latvian painter Džemma Skulme.
