Foyer Matinee: Indrė Jurgelevičiūtė

world music

Indrė Jurgelevičiūtė (Merope, Solo & Indrė, Book of Air) sings and plays the kanklės, a kind of zither from Lithuania. She combines the calm minimalism of Lithuanian folklore with a whirlwind of new ideas.  

“Indrė’s music speaks about human connection with nature and ritual magic in everyday life, and offers the listener a gift of soft melancholy and a quiet joy of being. Uniquely and sensitively expressed through the magic sound of the strings of Indrė’s kanklės, all these emotions once again reveal to us the profound meanings that are common to all world cultures.”
