It is a small town festival which started in 2019 in a music club Tamsta in Vilnius. A few folk bands united to start the spring season of folk music at the same venue. The audience were pleased to meet kankles study “Kanklių ratas” with their teacher Agota Zdanavičiūtė and a few well known Lithuanian projects gave their shows that evening – LAIMINGUO, FOLK TRIO, LIETIS and ATALYJA. It was a cosy evening with sincere music.
We believe that festival “FOLK RATU” will continue and next year we will be able to bring more bands to more places.
FACES OF THE CITY
„Faces of the City“ exhibition is an expression of towns and cities created by famous Lithuanian artists.
Valdemaras Šemeška and his works are well known to art connoisseurs. He is an artist who is actively creating and presenting his art works in various group and personal exhibitions in Europe. The Lithuanian faces captured by the painter are presented by professional Lithuanian musicians touching Lithuanian folklore in a delicate and sensitive way.
FOLK TRIO is a team of well-known Lithuanian performers – folk singer and teacher Ineta Meduneckyte, accordion master Nerijus Bakula and saxophone virtuoso Jan Maksimovich.
Art works present Lithuanian town and cities and FOLK TRIO music – the feeling of Lithuania. This project presents Lithuanian spirit in foreign countries, conveyed by creative expressions of art and music.
