Traditional Lithuanian wedding song played on the kanklės

Virginija Juodisius-Rubinski played a traditional Lithuanian wedding song played on the kanklės which is a Lithuanian plucked string musical instrument of the zither family.

 The instrument is similar in construction and origin to the Latvian kokle, Russian gusli, Estonian kannel and Finnish kantele.  The song is a Lithuanian wedding song where the friends and family of the bride say farewell.

She played at the ClevelandPeople.Com Passport Adventure to Lithuania at the Cleveland Lithuanian Club.  The Passport Adventurers visit traditional ethnic restaurants and showcases the food, culture, history of the country – in this case Lithuania.
