Porta World Music Festival
The 17th annual Porta festival starts on November 3 and consists of five concerts held over two weekends until November 12.
The first week will continue with a traditional concert at "Dailes" house of music, where spectators will have the chance to hear Karyna Gomes from Guinea-Bissau and the much skilled Abbos Kosimov collaborating with the local academically experimental group Xylem Trio.
On Sunday Gomes will perform at the lovely city of Saldus with a solo show as well, organizers say.
