This weekend, Skamba Skamba Kankliai, Lithuania's biggest folk music festival and one of Europe's largest as well, kicked off with a flurry of Lithuanian folk dancing, ancient sutartinės, and other forms of folk and ethnographic museum from Lithuania and around the world.

Today and this weekend, Vilnius will be full of performers and musicians in various traditional Lithuanian costumes and playing traditional and modern instruments. The men in our photo of the week are playing Lithuanian ragas trumpets, which were traditionally made of birch bark.

Skamba Skamba Kankliai will be happening all weekend - for more information, check out our What's On piece - and have a nice weekend!
