Lithuanian Folk Songs in the United States

This record serves to catalog the folk songs of Lithuania as performed by first and second generation immigrants to the USA. The rapid changes of measure and unique tonality of Lithuanian folk music that have fascinated ethnomusicologists are present throughout this 1955 a cappella release. The lack of instrumental diversity does not limit the excitement generated by the varied vocal performances of these traditional folk singers recreating songs of their homeland.
