Website about unique Lithuanian musical heritage Ancient Lithuanian instruments is a platform created to introduce unique Lithuanian musical heritage, its wide range of different lively sounding instruments.
http://www.ltinstrumentai.lt/en/
Here you will find short descriptions of Lithuanian folk musical instruments and have a chance to study antique sheet music as well as listen to the traditional songs and improvisations performed by professional musicians.
Most information found on the website is dedicated to the vast group of wind musical instruments. However, the content will be constantly growing. We hope that this website will become an open platform for sharing the tales, legends and knowledge of our musical history.
If you have any interesting stories or observations regarding ancient Lithuanian musical instruments, please do not hesitate to share them and contact us.
Descriptions of the instrument were prepared with the help of the ethnomusicologist Varsa Liutkutė Zakarienė. more
New music video - Laikas namo I would like to share a new video “Laikas namo!” This holiday season I would like to wish all of you to stop for a moment and meet your loved ones. Meanwhile, I would like to thank the director Paulius Dragunas, operator Mantrimas Šeškus who made this video. I would also like to thank wonderful actors Vytautas Suslavičius and Irena Kembriene who contributed so much. I feel very lucky because I’m surrounded by such talented people, who enrich our music so much. I would also like to wish a happy birthday to my brother, who is the author of this composition. Miss you, warm hugs.

New video from concert-documentary film - Freedom is Calling I would like to share a new music video. Tūto is a song from our newest album Freedom is Calling. I guess this piece reflects the other side of our music. This whole album was written for World Orchestra band.

New video - Tears of Duduk I always had a dream to make an artistic music video for one of our songs. And so I’m extremely happy to announce that it is finally here! I want to share with you our new music video - Tears of Duduk. About a year ago I met with the director Laura Tamošiūnaitė and operator - Elvina Nevardauskaitė. After listening to the album they chose this song and wrote a script for the music video. After glancing at the script I realised that we must #create together! I want to give huge thanks to Laura and Elvina and the entire creative team. It was a truly special time, thank you!

Test pressing Dear friends, I want to share some important news with you - in July we’re releasing out new album - Laisvė Šaukia (Freedom is Calling)! It is a brainchild of me and Donatas and we worked towards it for more than two years. The World Orchestra was heavily involved in the recording sessions and the high sonic quality was ensured by a team of sound engineers. More details on the creative and recording process are to come, but today is dedicated to a special occasion! In my hands you can see the first test press of the upcoming album in the Vinyl format! It is dedicated to my brother. I miss him dearly and I’m eager to present this programme live to you all! And if you would like to get your hands on one of the new CD’s or LP’s get in touch with us at info@spmuzika.com!

Bičiuliai, noriu pasidalinti svarbiomis žiniomis - liepos mėnesį pristatysime jums naują albumą - Laisvė šaukia! Tai mano ir Donato bendras kūrinys, prie kurio dirbome daugiau nei dvejus metus. Albumo įrašuose dalyvavo visas World Orchestra kolektyvas, o jo garso kokybe rūpinosi gausi inžinierių komanda. Kūrybos ir įrašų proceso detalėmis būtinai dar pasidalinsiu, o ši diena skirta dideliam džiaugsmui. Mano rankose pirmoji (test pressings) vinilinė plokštelė! Ji skirta mano mylimam broliui. Labai pasiilgau ir nekantrauju, kada galėsime vėl susitikti ir drauge pristatyti šią programą gyvai. O visus, kurie norėtų įsigyti vinilinę ar kompaktinę plokštelę, kviečiu parašyti el. paštu info@spmuzika.com
