They are charming, talented, and their language is music. They wave to the spring and greet it with sounds. We present a new program of the ensemble “Lietuva” orchestra girls “With love, kankles”. Maybe it’s time to hear kankles differently?
The concert features works by different Lithuanian and world composers. If you’re dating kankles for the first time, you’ll be amazed at how many styles they can include. Although authentic kankles were first played by men, this time it will be as gentle and feminine as never before.
For the first time, the program “With love, kanklės” was presented in the virtual space.
Kankles are one of the most popular Lithuanian instruments. Kankles were first mentioned in written historical sources in the 16th century. In the 20th century Kankles became popular as an instrument of solo, ensembles and orchestra of folk instruments.
The ensemble’s orchestra uses three types of modified kankles: high, bass and double bass.
