Imants Ziedonis Foundation “Viegli” was established in the spring of 2010 with the aim to pursue the mission dear to the patron of the Foundation, poet Imants Ziedonis, – “Latvia is an incredibly beautiful land, but such beauty needs help to shine.”
The Foundation promots and implements the ideas and values of Imants Ziedonis, continues to support creative and unusual ideas, and organizes public projects that reveal the beauty of Latvia.
To date, the Foundation has released two song albums featuring the lyrics by Imants Ziedonis and melodies composed by musicians Renārs Kaupers, Māra Upmanes-Holšteine, Jānis Holšteins-Upmanis, Jānis Strapcāns, Raimonds Gusarevs, Jānis Šipkēvics and Kārlis Kazāks. The album “Viegli”, released in 2010, was greatly appreciated. Following its success, Imants Ziedonis Foundation “Viegli” released its second album “Vakars.Pietura.Jasmīns.”
In cooperation with the European Latvian Song Festival in Brussels, “Viegli” will perform the most beautiful of the Foundation’s songs with lyrics by Imants Ziedonis.
