Harmony of seasons
Taureņi space is music embodied in stone rendered through laconicism and refinement of architectural lines.
Every creation made by man for other people can be considered a work of art. It is pleasant to look at it, it can show good skills of master-creator. But the outer form of a work of art is not its only merit. The main thing is what its voice of heart talks about.
With the help of poetry, music or dance movements a thought or a feeling can be created which can be felt by everyone. At the same time thoughts and feelings of people are unconsciously reproduced in everything a man's hand touches. Especially in the case when one talks about harmonious connection of man and surrounding nature.
With beginning of every new season the music is born. It is pure and timid as the first snowdrop, it is full of love and tenderness. It is strong and bright, it's hard to render it with words because it is so diverse, versatile and intricate. Art comes forth as an artist's helper.
In art an artist also perfects music of his soul and his mind. For him it is not a chaotic process but creative work which leads to creating and expressing certain feelings.
Architecture of Taureņi is a visual and tangible embodiment of feeling of life harmony and at the same time music of Baraka is a sound embodiment of this feeling.
Baraka – band of musicians from Riga – gives an opportunity to feel the atmosphere of Taureņi through lyrical compositions in which Oriental traditions are combined with modern European music.
