I am Colombian-Lithuanian and I have, for most of my life had difficulty making sense of the fact that sometimes I am this and that, and at other times I am neither. What began as an exploration of the Lithuanian communities int the NE US, resulted in revelatory experience that gave birth to a documentary (To Be LT – 1st Documentary). “Supakuoti Instrumentai” (Packed Instruments) was about identity and living heritage. Because packed instruments don’t count, heritage on a shelf is no good, identity gathering dust in some archive is dead…This song was born on the streets of Baltimore. On 17th of May, 2017 we brought it to Vilnius and we did it with a bang!
