“Lithuania – the World”
Esatis: Elena Trečiokaitė (voice), Mantas Remesa (guitar), Paulius Stonkus (bass guitar), Viktoras Rubežas (percussion), Donatas Bielkauskas (folk instruments, electronics)



Esatis is the name of the Lithuanian neofolk band, which refers to musical action that is taking place ‘here and now’ and characterizes the synthesis of ancient Lithuanian ethnic traditions and contemporary electronic, experimental and dark ambient music – all embraced in the present-day perception of the world. The band emerged last year in Klaipėda, initially formed by Donatas Bielkauskas (aka Donis), who is well-known in Lithuania as a talented multi-instrumentalist and producer of experimental ethnotronica albums, and percussionist Viktoras Rubežas. Later on they were joined by singer Elena Trečiokaitė, guitarist Mantas Remesa and bassist Paulius Stonkus. What lies at the heart of their work is music that dwells within every one of us, inspired by the beauty of the country’s nature and folklore – fairy tales and legends, odours and colours. “We are interested in looking for our ‘own’ style; the one, in which we set all the rules. All other audible influences in our compositions are just the elements of musical language and experiences drawn from our daily lives,” band members revealed. “The influence of world music is perhaps most apparent in percussion rhythms and emotional purport of our music. Even though all verses of our songs have been found in Lithuanian folk songs, with only very slight alterations, individual melodies and their interlacing sometimes sound rather close to traditional music of the Eastern countries. What we are trying to achieve is not the linkage of cultural differences but the harmony between similar cultures.”
Evenings of Summer Music
at the Park Stage of the Klaipėda Concert Hall

From June 30th through July 28th, 2016, the Klaipėda Concert Hall will host its annual Summer Concert Series at the Park Stage. The roster for this year’s series presents the best of Lithuanian musical talent performing a delectable selection of summertime music – a fresh blend of classical and popular, jazz and world music influences.

Dear citizens and visitors of Klaipėda! Come and join us for nine summer evenings at our backyard park and experience the delight of listening to live music in open air, surrounded by the natural greenery. The nature’s elements – the whispering wind, the cool of summer nights, and gentle susurration of the park – will surely add some extra flavour to the strains of music and give a special ambiance to the summer evenings that you can spend with your family and friends.

Summertime music at the park! Sounds truly tempting and worth listening to!
