Merope is an alternative world music band consisting of five musicians each deriving from five different universes.
Their music is inspired by ancient Lithuanian songs, embraced by organic sounds, modern harmonies and extending its influence to electronic music. The result is a unique alchemy of sounds.
Merope is inspired by nature and dreams, their songs are telling stories about the connection between humans and nature.
Their first album "9 Days" was created solely with solar power and recorded in the open lands of southern Spain. With the second album ' Amaranthine' Merope dedicate the poetic textures and the sound of their inner journeys to the waters of the world.
