Extraordinary things happen to people who trust the life and it's paths.
So did happen to me.
I was born in Austria, and I was surrounded by music ever since then. I was singing since I was 4 y.o, I was laureate at folk singing competition when I was 13, I've travelled around Europe with no money when I was in 11th grade, I've started to work as business developer from the age of 15, I've participated 8 erasmus+ projects and travelled all around the world where I have learned a lot about the music, and today, even thou my background is mainly in Fintech, every month I'm organising musical different musical evenings myself, where me and my friends play together, dance and teach others how to do that in order to keep this tradition alive among youth! :)

Absolutely loved this experience, would definitely recommend it to anyone who wants to try something different while in Vilnius, even if (like me) you have no singing or dancing experience or knowledge!

I had an amazing evening! The experience had a lot of cultural significance to Antanas and the people who attended. I am glad I met so many new friends and I would definitely come back for more events in the future! :)

It was an absolutely indelible experience! <3 I felt very welcomed and the positive atmosphere, as well as a thoughtful preparation, made it super easy to connect with everyone included the curious ones who came to be introduced with Lithuanian folk dances, songs and the ones who actively are into folklore. After a great Antanas' intro about a rich Lithuanian culture in general, a cozy and magical circle of us singing folk songs was a perfect beginning for a real Lithuanian-culture-based party full of energizing folk dances (the music was live and created using a huge variety of instruments)! So, if you want to be familiarized with Lithuanian culture and even practice it by yourself or simply to see how cool it actually is to foster your own cultural heritage, do not hesitate, attend and even have the chance to teach others your own cultural dances or songs! ;) Absolutely loved it and feel very grateful for the inspiration and a recall of how much I appreciate my own culture! <3
