Trys Keturiose – the ritual songs of bees – concert

The band perform original polyphonic songs called sutartinės. These songs stand out from the rest of Lithuanian folklore due to their numerous use of seconds, entwined voices, accentuated the rhythmical pattern and the simultaneous sound of two different texts (primary and refrain).  The group has many years of experience of singing traditional songs. They do not copy the music of the archive records but seek to retain the authentic colour of the sutartinės sound. The singers strive to understand the archaic language, experience a deeply spiritual and aesthetic feeling, and share these emotions with the modern listener.
