The musical folklore project LAIMINGUO was born in 2013 as a duo comprised of Agota and Dorotė Zdanavičiūtė. The sisters, who have been making music since an early age and are members of the SEN SVAJA band, decided to establish a musical duo that would be more oriented to festivals of life archeology and history both in Lithuania and beyond. Since 2016, during musical tour in Europe instrumentalist Rytis Girskas joined the band.
The band's musical programme consists not only of original rendering of Lithuanian folk songs and sutartinės, but also traditional music from other nations blended with Lithuanian folklore.
The compositions they perform feature two voices accompanied by drum, kanklės (zithers), occasionally, a Jew's harp and traditional Indian string instruments, such as sitar, sarod, bansuri. LAIMINGUO have played to audiences both in Lithuania and internationally. They have performed at the experimental archeology festival Biskupin in Poland, at viking markets in Norway, and at various music festivals in Czech Republic and Hungary. They also collaborate with shamans from different cultures, and their music is played live during various rituals.
In 2016, the sisters released their debut album "Laiminguo". The word 'laiminguo' is an archaic form of the Lithuanian word of wishing happiness.
The musicians believe in the purity of traditional music and send their good wishes to the listeners while performing it.
