zoomLithuania The International Festival of Instrumental Folk Music "Griezyne"

Unique in terms of genre in Lithuania and the most enduring in the eastern Baltics, GRIEZYNE International Festival of Instrumental Folk Music is a special event held every second year in Vilnius. It emerged in 1992 as a bodily form of an idea suggested by two enthusiasts of instrumental folk music - composer Algirdas Klova and Arunas Lunys. The name of the festival - GRIEZYNE - was chosen purposefully. GRIEZYNE is a dialect word for fiddle, one of the chief folk instruments in Lithuania and in other countries.

The festival seeks to familiarise its audience with folk music performers, folk instruments, and traditional music of different countries. Its purpose is to demonstrate to the festival guests the authentic tradition of Lithuanian folk music performance. GRIEZYNE has already hosted musicians from Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, Russia, Ukraine, Poland, Finland, England, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Peru, Ireland, Wales, USA, Italy, Japan, Iran and many other parts of the world.

GRIEZYNE means more than a series of folk music performances. It includes shows of musical instruments and exhibitions of photos featuring folk music players, or folklore documentaries presenting rich ethnographic material on customs, musical instruments' production, musicians, and dances.

Festival organizers are Algirdas Klova, The Centre of Lithuanian Folk Culture, Vilnius Teachers' House, J. Jukai' Museum of Ethnic Culture.
