In the heart of creating a spiritual fusion of sound, The Lithuanians have combined forces to put fresh spins on tunes while still maintaining their traditional klezmer mother tongue: pickled herring, bagels & lox, and kugel meet Led Zeppelin, margaritas, and Nils Landgren to make beautiful harmonies on the streets of Harlem--make that Vilnius. What began as a casual jam session at a KlezKanada in the summer of 2005, The Lithuanian Empire has evolved into a contagiously energetic and innovative band. The band\'s unique composition of members spans from East, West, and Central Canada; the Appalachian Mountains, and the Capital of the United States. Members come from a variety of musical backgrounds, and each adds their unique perspective to the music. After another successful tour in Canada punctuated by a show-stopping performance on the main stage at the Ashkenaz Festival in Toronto, we are talking seriously about a second recording project. Keep your eyes and ears peeled!
