Saulius Petreikis World Orchestra video - Samogits Out now! In the beginning of this year we received a call from Skuodas district municipality with a proposal to create something for our native region. Donatas and I agreed with a passion and today we want to share with you the result! We warmly hope that this video will catch your interest to visit our region and it’s unique locations! I want to thank director Airidas Janušauskas and his team Turbo for creating this video! I also want to express my gratitude to Skuodas district municipality and their trust in our vision!

Saulius Petreikis World Orchestra \ This EP is a strange mixture of cold and hot. It seems as if the cold Scandinavian wind has merged with Lithuanian summer breeze creating vivid music compositions that are taking one to the ancient times, yet still inviting to stay present - here and now. Just listen, be present and fully feel.
All the pieces were recorded live thus this work gives a feeling of attending a live performance. EP will be available only digitally across all digital music streaming platforms.

About "Laimingo laimintuo"
This song-ritual is about closest people. It’s a blessing and wish for luckiness to our relatives: mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers.

About "Odeon"
Odeon was written by my brother Donatas Petreikis. Currently he is studying saxophone and musical composition at Danish Academy of music. He draws his inspiration from Scandinavian culture that is immersed in winds and maritime climate. Odeon has a majestic sound that echoes the atmosphere of the sacred places where only the highest pieces of art are being shared - music, painting, sculpture, poetry...

About "Tears of Duduk"
Now - having in mind current global situation - is the right time to be more attentive to yourself and those around you. I would like to share my new song Tears of Duduk that me and my brother Donatas wrote. More than a year ago I was in Dzūkija where the first melody line for this song appeared. Donatas took it and found an overall sound as well as the right arrangement for it.
Duduk (also known as balaban) is more than 2000 years old and is included in UNESCO on the Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity. Nomatter where I am travelling, this instrument is always by my side. It has a unique tembre. It allows to tell those stories that invite to stop, contemplate and touch something that is already experienced.
