Gaujarts is a band from Riga, Latvia, performing continuously since 2007. Band has released two studio albums, one of which was awarded top alternative album honors (Vibrācijas, 2011) at the Latvian Music Producers Association Prize event. Gaujarts has made several music videos, and constantly performs in local clubs and festivals (Positivus, LabaDaba, etc.).

The acoustic sound, which characterized the early years, has lately aquired some electronic overtones, with the latest single "Svītriņas" having electronic beat.

Uldis Rudaks, music journalist, "Diena" (biggest Latvian daily) about Gaujarts:
"Gaujarts in their music joins the Latvian poetry of 70-ties and 80-ties with their music in perfect - and very fragile - combination. Music itself reminds a bit of 70-ties Soviet pop songs, a nicely arranged, sometimes orchestral soundscape, topped with deep baritone lead vocal, giving great significance to the lyrics. It's not something that will sound good in a stadium, but it sure sounds good in ones heart".
