In a previous life, Jurgis was a successful musician. This Colombian-Lithuanian has thrived as a chameleon on the Lithuanian music scene for well over 15 years. Fearless experimentation earned him numerous awards and garnered many hits, but there was only so much he could do within the constraints of his industry. So a couple of years ago, inspired by examples of disruptive innovation, he decided to break the mould and began to use music and adjacent art-forms deliberately as a means for social impact. That desire to do more with his art redefined him and the scope of his activities. It has spawned a new form of exceptional, participatory musical experiences, that enlighten and engage as well as entertain.
But Jurgis is more than a musician. He studied Political Science and Business Administration, and has extensive experience in campaigning, corporate education, media-consulting, and many things “social”. He’s hosted TV shows, sat on the board of NGO’s and has entertained practically everywhere; from arenas packed with thousands of people, to corporate boardrooms, government institutions, TEDx and kindergartens. His diverse background ranging from Eurovision to EU consultant allows him to transcend formats, adapt to audiences effortlessly, and shape-shift flexibly.
Jurgis wants to leave the world a better place than he found it. Music, art and FUN are his weapons of choice. By seamlessly mixing his passion for music and social phenomenon, he proves that an artist can do more than just entertain; he can make a difference.
