- Finally, one central place on the Web to learn about the years Latvians spent in refugee camps in Germany after World War II. The creators of DP Albums are children of these refugees who realise it is time to broach this subject on the Web before the memories are erased forever with the passing of the older generation. How many of us have old Displaced Persons camp photos in albums and boxes? If our grandparents or parents can still remember many of the people depicted in these photos, then "seize the day" and question them and take notes! Or, better still, ask them if they would agree to have the photos scanned and sent to this Web site so the images can become part of the bigger global archive that will document the DP years, a period that had such a formative effect on the life of Latvians living outside Latvia for the past 50 years.

One of the CD releases that many Latvian folklore fans most look forward to is the bi-yearly Latvian folk music collection Sviests. Full of new recordings of songs that are, in both direct and indirect ways, inspired by Latvian folk music and folklore, the series is one of the most eclectic collections of Latvian folk music available.

The accordion is, without a doubt, a very popular instrument in Latvia. An essential aspect of most every countryside šlāger ensemble, the quaint sound made by air pushed through the instrument brings forth thoughts of evenings in French cafes or German beer gardens. Unfortunately, some might not consider the ‘accordion’ a serious instrument – relegated to being played by buskers on street corners.
