I take a piece of Latvian clay and mould it with my hands until a little miracle is born.

I'm from Riga -a city boy. Look up to Riga's church towers! Roosters sit proudly on top of them with the sunshine lighting up their frames. My big brothers are made of gold and copper but I am from clay. Play my song and it will take you back to Riga.

Beauty of our home, bird songs in the dawn, blue lakes - the memories inspire to create. Sparrow symbolises modesty. Dove bears love, human soul and the world, but the seagull is the symbol of freedom and life journey. My svilpaunieks embodies all of these values because they have a special meaning to my Latvia, too

I created svilpaunieks larger in size and with more holes on its side so you could play a melody within one octave. My favourite songs for the svilpaunieks are lullabies, carols and folk songs.
