One of best Latvian song (Saule, Pērkons, Daugava [English: Sun, Thunder, Daugava (river)]) by Martiņš Brauns now is part of Catalonia (in Spain) politics and diplomacy.
I still remember flag, which Francisco had in office. That was the first time when I heard so many things about Catalonia.
Ara és l’hora / Saule, Pērkons, Daugava
The Cor Jove of the Orfeó Català performs, over the ruins in El Born Centre Cultural, the Catalan adaptation of “Saule, Pērkons, Daugava”. This work was written by the Latvian Martins Brauns and became the anthem of the 1989 Baltic Way. The Catalan version features an adaptation of the poem “Meditació última” (Final Meditation) by Miquel Martí i Pol. Lyrics adapted by Jaume Ayats.
