SMETONOS ŪSAI

Lithuanian Folklore | Lithuania

SMETONOS ŪSAI is an instrumental trio who play music recorded in the beginning of the last century in towns and countryside of Lithuania: polkas, waltzes, foxtrots, marches. They learned most of these melodies from musicians from the region of Aukštaitija. The members of the group want to stay close to the authentic sound so they play in a composition characteristic to the times: violin, diatonic Peterburg harmonica, hand drum. While playing they enrich the melodies with improvisation, creating subtle compositions.
