Since 2012 the musical band “Raxtu Raxti” literally mesmerizes listeners. Why such admiration? Because “Autobuss Debesīs”, the rock group so popular in Latvia, has teamed-up with widely renowned ethnomusicians. Because favorite old and new songs alike are performed in a manner so close to folk music and in a style unique to this group. Because they offer a fresh take on familiar folk songs. Because the group speaks to modern audiences with a distinctive sound that draws from traditions past. This group plays traditional Latvian and other world-music instruments. The “Raxtu Raxti” music-making mission is comparable to a pair of densely patterned mittens hand-knit in the best traditions of folk art.
