ABOUT
The ethno rock band Laimas Muzykanti was founded in 1995 in Daugavpils, Latvia. It was founded and is still led by musician, folklorist, arranger, and multi-instrumentalist public worker Artūrs Uškāns.

In the beginning, Laimas Muzykanti was characterized as approximating authentic folk music by using folk music instruments and authentic folk singing, created on the basis of folk narrator chants and playing manners of folk musicians collected in folklore expeditions. Over time, the musicians have experimented with a variety of sounds, instruments, and unusual musical combinations.

Now, Laimas Muzykanti is a high-energy Latvian folk music band that puts people on their feet all around the world. The fast polka rhythms are mixed with beautiful traditional Latvian folk ballads, as well as some more rock guitar riff-driven folk songs. All in all, Laimas Muzykanti shows the best there is in traditional and post-traditional Latvian folklore.

Laimas Muzykanti have given concerts in Australia, Canada, the USA, Japan, the UK, Italy, Hungary, Germany, Sweden, Uzbekistan, Lithuania, Poland, Belarus, and Russia.

In 2018, Laimas Muzykanti participated with concerts in the Winter Olympic Games in PyeongChang, South Korea.

Now the band's basic staff consists of 5 members, but sometimes the band cooperates with other professional musicians and band ex-members.
