Skyforger Featured On BBC Special About Latvian Folk Music

Skyforger has been featured in a BBC special on Latvia's love of folk music. The band is captured live at a Latvian Music Awards Ceremony and is interviewed by the BBC's correspondent Damien McGuinness. You can check out the video at this location.

This BBC News series focuses on aspects of life in countries and cities around the world. This month Latvia celebrates the 20th anniversary of its declaration of independence from Soviet Russia. An integral part of the fight for freedom was folk singing, which kept the country's culture alive during the years of Soviet rule. Two decades on, this singing tradition is still alive and kicking, as BBC correspondent Damien McGuinness found out in the Latvian capital Riga.

Skyforger's new album "Kurbads" hits streets May 11th in North America. The track listing is as follows:

1. Curse Of The Witch
