Summary: We show that the Littlewood-Richardson coefficients are values at 1 of certain parabolic Kazhdan-Lusztig polynomials for affine symmetric groups. These \(q\)-analogues of Littlewood-Richardson multiplicities coincide with those previously introduced by A. Lascoux, B. Leclerc and J.-Y. Thibon [J. Math. Phys. 38, No. 2, 1041-1068 (1997; Zbl 0869.05068)] in terms of ribbon tableaux.
