Welcome to our music blog!

Here is something you see every day: yet another blog. We are introducing Skaņas, a blog about Latvian music, which will serve to capture information that does not always fit into other places on Latvians Online.

Skaņas by no means is the first blog to report on the Latvian music scene. Take a look at the various entries about music on such sites as Blogiem.lv, for example. Nor is Skaņas to compete with Web sites such as Music in Latvia, which especially covers the classical scene in Latvia.

What we will try to do in this space is pass on information that may be of special interest to readers outside Latvia. Hardly a day goes by when we don’t hear of a new compact disc release, a tour by Latvian music artists abroad, formation of a group or ensemble, or other interesting news. Here is where we will report what we learn.

Have news about Latvian music you think would be of interest to our readers? Have suggestions for what we ought to cover? Let us know by editor@latviansonline.com.

Andris Straumanis is a special correspondent for and a co-founder of Latvians Online. From 2000–2012 he was editor of the website.
