To mark the 50th birthday of the late Latvian rock musician Ēriks Ķiģelis, his son Fēlikss Ķiģelis and other musicians have released a new album of his songs, Rudens vēju muzikants 2, Platforma Records of Rīga has announced.
Ķiģelis, one of the founders of the Liepāja guitar rock group Līvi, died 20 years ago in an automobile accident. He was born May 11, 1955.
The album includes well-known Ķiģelis songs such as “Saulgriežu rīts,” “Laika dziesmiņa” and “Kurzeme,” as well as songs such as “Atbilde” and “Vēlējums” that have never been released in albums.
Besides Fēlikss Ķiģelis, performing on the album are Aivars Brīze of Līvi, Juris Kaukulis of Dzelzs Vilks, Artis Dvarions of R.A.P., Ivo Fomins and the Liepāja group The Briefings.
The album is a followup to the 1999 album Rudens vēju muzikants, which also saw Fēlikss Ķiģelis honoring the memory of his father. That album was released on the MICREC label.
