The most amusing village band in the world!

In Maramures, a mountainous area of southwestern Ukraine near the border with Romania and Hungary, village musicians are called hudakis. The nine hudakis of the “Pasaulis Skamba” festival are masters of powerful and archaic music: slavic vocal tradition, Romanian melodies, Jewish rhythms and Romani temperament converge at the crossroads of cultures.

The members of Hudaki Village Band don’t need to pretend – they are real village musicians who have played at Sziget, Fusion, Rudolstadt, Bardentreffen and other festivals.

Well-known Lithuanian troubadours Rakija Klezmer Orkestar will warm up.

Descendant of the famous Malian griot family, Djely Tapa mixes Sahelian blues and electro atmospheres like a hot African wind. Djely Tapa’s rich, powerful voice radiates her femininity and Africanness.

After spending her childhood in Mali, then completing her engineering studies in Canada, Djely Tapa eventually followed the footsteps of her mother, a famous singer. “African heritage leads me into the future,” she said of her album Barokan, which won a nomination for the best world music album at the JUNO Awards. In Lithuania, the artist will present this album for the first time.

Taiwanese swirl

Fusing traditional influences with a global sensibility, award winning ensemble A Moving Sound (Sheng Don) from Taiwan, built a worldwide following through their joyous mix of original music and dance.

Featuring the distinctive timbres of the erhu (Taiwanese fiddle) and zhong ruan (lute), and the transcendent vocals of Mia Hsieh, A Moving Sound has devised a unique and compelling style that is all their own – a Taiwanese whirlwind that veers between the meditative and the exuberant with irrepressible spirit.
