why we love this

Ethereal in its organicity, Salos is a subtle study of Lithuanian folk songs. Modernity encoded in tradition.

about the record

'Salos' (Islands) is the new album by Merope, a group largely centred around the singing and kanklės playing by Lithuanian Indrė Jurgelevičiūtė. The collective is a prime example of Lithuanian folk influences finding a firm place in the worldwide ocean of experimental folk music.

For 'Salos' they collaborated with the Vilnius chamber choir Jauna Muzika and conductor Vaclovas Augustina who also contributed some compositional work. Also, Merope was joined by their friends and recorded some extras in Reykjavik Iceland featuring Gyda Valtisdottir (Mùm), Kjartan Sveinsson (Sigur Rós) Shahzad Ismaily (Marc Ribot, Laurie Anderson).

By exploring Lithuanian folk songs, using ancient heritage and building new compositions around them they transform timeless folk songs into deep personal explorations.
