Sedula

Six female singers joined to form Sedula in 1994. The ensemble focuses mostly on vocal folk music, its creative interpretation and post-folk transformation, with a subtle accompaniment of kanklės (the Lithuanian type of zither), violins, skudučiai (multi-pipe whistles), percussion and other instruments. Interpretations of Sedula are remarkable for their idiosyncratic, transparent and spellbindingly undulating sound of women’s voices. On stage they wear beautiful costumes recreated after the 15th-16th c. examples. Two albums released over the last decade confirm that folk music for the ensemble is a live and ever changing phenomenon: Sedula: šiuolaikinis žvilgsnis į viduramžius (A Contemporary Interpretation of Middle Ages), 2003; Kalėdų rytą saulė pražydo (The Sun Came into Bloom on Christmas Morning), 2006. The leader of the ensemble, Daiva Steponavičienė, is also known as a post-folk performer under the stage name Rugiaveidė.
