Auleja is a small village in Latvia's eastern region of Latgale where a rich heritage of folklore has been preserved. It is precisely the traditional vocal music of this area, characterised by smooth, graceful melodies and a specific style of multipart singing, that has earned particular recognition. The longevity of Auleja's traditional music is linked to the work of the Aulejas Sievas (women from Auleja) ethnographic ensemble, which is one of the oldest such ensembles in Latvia. This album is a tribute to Auleja, to its three generations of singers and their families. Limited to 300 copies on white vinyl.
