MEROPE - Lithuanian folk, supported by Passing Through Eden
Merope play Lithuanian folk melodies together with their own compositions, textures of sound, subtle harmonies and polyrhythm, improvisations melted with electronic soundscapes. Their first album "9 Days" (2012) was created solely with solar power and recorded in the open lands of southern Spain. With the second album ' Amaranthine' (2015) Merope dedicate the poetic textures and the sound of their inner journeys to the waters of the world. Their third album 'Naktės' (2018) presents a world full of wonder inspired by the precious mood of the night. Merope's atmosphere gives life to a new ritual music of our modern time. "Album that is as delicate as it is deep: something very special indeed." Songlines, UK. Passing Through Eden, formerly known as 'Just Joseph', is a solo instrumentalist who creates rich ambient soundscapes by creating loops with his guitar.

What we're about

Please note that this group has No Show policy. If you fail to turn to 2 events you'll be banned from the group.

"The truest expression of a people is in its dances and in its music"

From traditional ethnic music to foreign language pop music, the phrase "World Music" covers a lot of ground. From Reggae to Ragas, Celtic to Klezmer, Salsa to Paris Cafe, world music pretty much encompasses everything that doesn't fit comfortably into an typical 'Top 40' pop chart.

All in all, world music is considered just plain music to the vast majority of people in the world. Music is universal, and to discover the music of a culture is to discover the culture as a whole.
