Baltic musicians – Latvian band Tools, Lithuanian singer Jazz and Estonian groups Ewert and the Two Dragons leader Everts Sundja – United to record a new song dedicated to the 30th anniversary of the Baltic Way, to be held on August 23, 2019.
Although recorded in mid-July, this song will be presented to the general public at a major event in late August, when the fourth special member of the project will also be unveiled.
The music of the song is written by Reinis Cayan (Tools) and the words are written by the Latvian poet Mart Puyat.
«This is a very special project that we co-authored with musicians from the Baltic States and another special partner to be presented at the premiere of the song in late August and at the same time the promoter of this inspirational project. Today the history of the Baltic Way seems completely unique, but at that time it seemed impossible to do otherwise. One person cannot do anything without the support of other people of the same kind, and such measures prove it a thousand times. When we unite, we are much stronger than we understand, "Sean says.
The authors of the project celebrate the Baltic States and their history with a newly created song to remember and transmit from generation to generation the meaning of the value of freedom – the freedom that the people of these countries have longed for, creating the Baltic Way.
