2010 – present (10 years)

Sus Dungo, an all-female ensemble from Rīga, Latvia, formed in 2008, call themselves "Latvian indie pop fairies", and after releasing their well-received EP Rasā Pēdas in 2012, have now released their first full length album Down the River.
Sus Dungo's sound is indeed challenging to characterize in just a few words, as the various instruments in the ensemble all give a dreamy and fairy tale like sound. Flute, accordion, harp, as well as electric guitar, drums, and the occasional stringed instrument give their music an added depth and dimension. Blending together various styles, listening to Sus Dungo is indeed like an aural fairy tale, full of majestic sights and sounds.
The group's work has been recognized with a Latvian Gold Microphone Best Debut Award in 2012.
Though Rasā Pēdas was entirely in Latvian, the group decided to record almost all of Down the River in English (with one song in French), presumably to reach an international audience. The decision appears to be paying off, as the group has become noticed outside of Latvia.
