Summer weather + standing around for over five hours = tiiiiired.
Summer weather + walking around Prague + dancing = fun, let's go see more of Prague! (The impression my sister gives of her Latvians.)

I'll post more when I sort through the photos. They very kindly posed for me for photos of all the female costumes, plus of course I took lots of other photos of other ensembles as well. (I love Latvian folk costumes. And folk costumes from the general Baltic area. Compared to costumes from areas like France, you can really see how they would have been made at home.)

I don't have any videos, because my camera tends to turn itself off after less than a minute when I take videos...

So an old one. This song's very popular with Latvian folklore dance ensembles; the lyrics are traditional, the melody and arrangement are by the Latvian music group Iļģi.



Heh. Really, really popular.



(That's from Dzeismu svétki, the Festival of Songs, a tradition since the 1870s. I guess this goes a long way towards explaining why this particular choreography seems so widespread.)
