THE LOST CLOG & VESERIS present: BALTIC BALLROOM BLITZ
Buckle-up! Bacon bingeing Baltic buddies are back in brilliant Brunswick for a blended Baltic Ballroom Blitz.
The Lost Clog (Melbourne / Lithuania) and Veseris (Melbourne / Latvia) unite for a Saturday matinee show. Songs about socks, pancakes, horses and various pagan deities will abound in the beautiful surrounds of Music Victoria’s recently voted Best Small Venue.
The Lost Clog is a multi-award winning folk ensemble made up of the offspring of Lithuanian World War 2 refugees. They infuse centuries old Lithuanian folk music with decades old fashion and months old facial hair.
“Comic relief and a highlight … The Lost Clog performed Lithuanian songs with humorous themes and great harmonies. Dressed in colourful Lithuanian folk costumes, their performances were further amplified with props and theatrical components, dancing and cheeky narratives. The audience laughed often and with gusto. This 10-piece vocal group from Melbourne was a delightful surprise” CBR City News National Folk Festival Review April 7, 2023
Veseris - translated as Sledgehammer - is a renowned, Melbourne based Latvian mens’ choir led by virtuosic conductor, Sandra Birze. They break into harmony and demolish the traditional genre of diasporic ethnic choirs. Blending a combination of traditional and contemporary instruments and form, Veseris takes you from Latvian country-side folk songs to complex prog rock inspired pagan movements.
They have performed across Australia and have just returned from a triumphant tour to Latvia where they participated with a choir of 16,000 voices at the World Latvian Song Festival in front of a live audience of 40,000 people.
