Jausmė: Kanklės

Jausmė is a composer, singer, songstress, who is one of the not-so-many artists who decided to spread the word about the kanklės, a traditional Lithuanian zither-harp, beyond the borders of Lithuania. In her compositions, with the help of her voice, 29 strings, Lithuanian and English languages, she weaves the styles of folklore, soul, minimalism into a cosy blanket, decorated with elements of dub, jazz, post-rock, electronica and other genres she enjoys.

After half a decade of musical work (solo and other projects, documentary soundtrack in collaboration with BBC, electronic music collaborations, organising events) and life in Bristol, UK, the performer came back to the motherland in the summer of 2020. There, inspired by her roots, familiar forests, language, people’s stories and musicians such as Thom Yorke, Moses Sumney, The Cinematic Orchestra, Lianne La Havas etc., in March 2022, she released a solo album ‘Namolio’ about her journey back home and to her authenticity, through losses and discoveries, realisations and unlearning.

Viktoras Paukštelis (piano, Lithuania)

On 10 June, we invite all to a long-awaited concert: a solo recital by the talented pianist Viktoras Paukštelis!

Viktoras Paukštelis is often described as an artist of a unique nature, as he brings to the public a fusion of his two talents: painting and piano playing. For him, music and art are intertwined, complementary components: the unpolished impulsiveness of his paintings adds experimental boldness to his music on stage, while the visual work of colours in creating form becomes an aural experience which is transferred to the pianistic plane. This synthesis of the two arts has no parallel on the classical stage.

Viktoras Paukštelis performs in Lithuania, US, France, Germany, Scandinavia, Lithuania, France, Germany and Scandinavia, and participates in Lithuanian and international festivals. After a highly successful performance at New York’s Carnegie Hall, The New York Concert Review called Victor’s sense of rhythm “top-notch” and his playing “sincere, robust and stirring”.

Performance date: 2023-06-10 17:00

Programme: J. S. Bach, F. Chopin, S. Rachmaninoff
