Forget Teo’s “Cheesecake”—there is a new edible delight in town. Aarzemnieki, an upstart band fronted by German singer Jöran Steinhauer, has won Dziesma 2014!
Their song “Cake to Bake” is a feel-good number that suggests it’s the little things in life that matter. The chorus opens with Jöran discussing mankind’s achievements—building the Great Wall of China, searching for the lost underworld of Atlantis. But all he really wants to do is bake a cake—and it’s delicious.
Jöran, who completed mandatory military service by doing volunteer work in Latvia, has become something of a national hero in his adopted country. In January Latvia joined the euro-zone. To commemorate the switch to the euro, Jöran composed a song honoring the outgoing lat.
