Even though these “Baltos varnos” (White Crows) are by no means new-comers in the music world, they never fail to amaze and enchant audiences with their characteristically magical blend of text, music and voices. This combination has delighted audiences not just in Lithuania but abroad as well – this was evident in this year’s National Eurovision selection rounds, where the group earned widespread support for their song Namų dvasia (Home spirit) and further expanded their crowd of fans.
What is their recipe for success? According to the group’s singers, sisters Milka and Teresė, there is no recipe. There’s just the genuine wish to remind us of how beautiful our nation’s music sounds, and to allow each member of the audience to dream, feel nostalgic and discover themselves in their words.
We believe that this group’s wish will come true, especially since “Baltos varnos” will be taking to the stage with a solid line-up – the multi-instrumentalist Tadas Dešukas and a string quartet.
Program features original songs by “Baltos varnos”
