Saulės kliošas

What started as a fun project of music students, today is arguably Lithuania's biggest funk act. Never chasing musical trends, Saulės kliošas stick to their love of music style that's not exactly the most popular in Baltic states, and prove there's an audience for it – getting a ticket for their show is quite often a difficult business. One of quite a few acts to successfully perform both in most fashionable nightclubs and respected jazz festivals, this bohemian crew are perfectionists when it comes to recording – they're currently in the process of making only a second album of their five year career. The band's singer Daiva Starinskaitė has won numerous contests of jazz vocalists.
