Retro Sunday: Latvia 2005

Reality struck harsh earlier this week when we received the sad news that Latvian singer/songwriter Mārtiņš Freimanis died at only 33 due to serious complications caused by an influenza infection. This week’s Retro Sunday is dedicated to him and goes out to all the people who mourn the loss of this talented young man:

We have previously listed this song as one of our favorite entries of all times. It is such a gem in all its simplicity and even though perhaps not as well performed as it could be, the quality of the song carry Walters & Kazha over troubled vocal water and what they may lack in skills they make up for with bundles of charm and heartfelt joy over being up on that stage in Kiev.

Thank you Mārtiņš Freimanis for giving us this song. RIP.
