Jānis Lucaus, the Chairman of the Board of AAS BTA Baltic Insurance Company: Latvian power songs, revealing experience of our nation, along with ancient Latvian folk symbols, folklore and symbolic architectural monuments shape the cultural heritage of our nation. As a Latvian insurance company, we have the honour and duty to help preserve our cultural heritage. I believe that the strong will of our people, their hard work and power of togetherness that reveals through the chant of Latvian power songs is that very power of our nation, capable of inspiring and strengthening our belief in our abilities.
