Student clubs

The creation of NABAKLAB is not an accidental event originating from external historical circumstances; it is the result of the spiritual maturity accumulated and shaped by an intellectual human.

The idea of the necessity of NABAKLAB is connected with a call of cultural and educated people at the beginning of the XXI century to strive for knowledge and high-quality sound by creating a compelling, high standard club. This call materialized in 2009 when café “Gauja” and "Radio Naba” of the University of Latvia decided to establish a new club.
