Sigita, my Lithuanian language teacher at Vytautas Magnus University (VDU) in Kaunas, sent me this at Christmas a couple of years ago before I started this blog. She just got back in touch with me after extensive travelling and it reminded me of this song she sent me.
So now I want to share it again with you, my Lithuanian friends and colleagues and followers of my blog. It’s a song from the Dzukija region performed by a collaboration between Donis and Kūlgrinda.
Donis is a Lithuanian ambient, neofolk and experimental music project created by the Klaipėda multi-instrumentalist Donatas Bielkauskas.
Kūlgrinda is a neofolk/pagan folk band from Vilnius, Lithuania, established in 1990 by Inja and Jonas Trinkūnas. The band owes its name to kūlgrinda – a secret Samogitian underwater causeway.
