    Ancient Lithuanian Kanklės

    From beneath the roots of the Lithuanian world tree comes the music of the kankles. It's said to be the music of the ancestors and the Gods.


    The issue presents the materials of latest investigations concerning ancient Lithuanian kanklės - the musical instruments, one of most characteristic feature of Lithuanian folk art and ethnic music and the evidence of old ethnocultural relations among the Balts, the Baltic Finns and Eastern Slavs.
