OVERVIEW

On the southern coast of the Baltic Sea, the air is filled with music in Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania. Singing and dancing are an essential part of the Baltic soul that their expression is honored on UNESCO’s list of Intangible Cultural Heritage. Both a repository and a showcase for the region’s tradition of performing folk art, this cultural expression culminates in large-scale festivals every five years in Estonia and Latvia and every four years in Lithuania. These grand events, held over several days, assemble over 40,000 singers and dancers.
