The winners of Latvian Music Recording Awards “Zelta Mikrofons 2022” revealed

On 26 February, the best recordings of the previous year were awarded in a magnificent ceremony broadcast live from the Media Centre of the Riga Art and Media Technical College. The Latvian Music Recording Awards were given out for the 26th time, and this year's ceremony was dedicated to Ukraine's support. “Zelta Mikrofons 2022” organizers, musicians, winners, prize presenters, and attendees united together to show their support for the Ukraine, its people, and world peace, for which we are all praying. During the ceremony, a donation phone line was open for anyone to call in order to help Ukraine.

The ceremony began with a special song - "Imagine" by John Lennon, performed by Latvian musicians, expressing support and sending energy to the Ukrainian people during this difficult and uncertain time. 

The awards ceremony featured performances by many latvian artists, and NOËP from Estonia performed "Head Out of Water" as a guest performer.
