The organizers of the tournament had entrusted the creation of the song to the popular local group “Astro’n’out” this year.
“It is a great honor to create the official song of such an important event! The song is about going for victories and we believe that the whole community of the hockey world will be able to associate with the message of this song, as well as every listener who challenges himself every day, striving for new personal achievements, “says the group ‘s soloist Māra Upmane – Holstein.
Māra Upmane – Holstein also emphasizes that the families and hockey players shown in the clip are not actors, but families representing the Latvian hockey family. These families symbolize the message of the song: behind all the victories is a long, selfless work and selfless family support.
“The new hockey song is beautiful, it expresses an emotional and positive message, it inspires,” Edgars Buncis, the head of the organizing committee, is satisfied with the cooperation with the group “Astro’n’out”. He hopes that the result of the authors’ creative work will become a hit among hockey fans and more.
