He was born on Januar 12, 1936 in Riga. He’s one of all time favourite composers or Latvia. The most distinguished writer of Latvian popular music and pianist Raimonds Pauls is the most famous composer not only in Latvia, but also far beyond its borders. His music has been performed in countless countries and in the most prestigious concert halls, and all of this was possible thanks to his unique flair of melody. Unlike many other songwriters, Raimonds Pauls himself is often the interpreter of his own compositions or the concert master of performers.
A hallmark of his sound is a very individual, short and accentuately curted stroke that is a distinct characteristic of his style. But he is not afraid to entrust his melodies for the interpretation of other creative groups or to form special bands of performers and produce the sound of his music by himself. The fertile creative imagination of Maestro Raimonds Pauls has brought together the intonations of Latvian folk music, jazz, blues, rock’n’roll, French chanson, German schlager and the intonations and elements of national popular songs.
The group has been performing already for 33 years. Several generations of singers have changed. They have left a lot of records at the Latvian Radio - mainly songs by Latvian composers, sung just by the children themselves or together with the best professionals.
