Brisbane-based 'Zigrida Ansamblis' (Valda Biezaitis, Ance Deksne and Tija Lodins) has explored Latvian musical and cultural heritage for many years. The ensemble continuously develops and defines their voice in a contemporary context. The predominant instrument played by "Zigrida Ansamblis" is the kokle - an ancient Latvian string instrument. The group combines the use of the kokle, bass kokle, percussion, stabules, and voice to express and arrange Latvian folk music, and compose music in true 'Zigrida style'.
