Latvian Literature has the honour to present indie rock band SIGMA, which will perform songs from their second album Mythologies. All song lyrics are written by well-known Latvian poets – Kārlis Vērdiņš, Inese Zandere, Marts Pujāts, Anna Auziņa, Jānis Rokpelnis, Inga Gaile and Uldis Bērziņš. This concert will be a part of celebrating Latvia’s participation at the London Book Fair 2018 as a market focus country and also Latvia’s Centenary.
I heard them play in Riga last month and am assured that at this concert they will be singing in English. That week I also went to the launch of 30 Questions People Don’t Ask: The Selected Poems of Inga Gaile which I will be saying more about soon. One particular poem has taken deep root in my head – cracker of a poem called Rebirth of the City. I whole-heartedly recommend it and the rest of the collection to you.
SIGMA are Jānis Ozoliņš, vocal and keys, Kaspars Lastovskis, bass, and Uģis Eihvalds, percussion. The band was formed in 2005 with its debut album released in 2015 and received the Annual Latvian Music Recording Award for Best Alternative or Indie Album.
