Kanklės player and singer, whose music harmoniously combines the traditions of her native land and the soundscapes of various world cultures and contemporary styles. The quiet minimalism of Lithuanian folklore and creative improvisation characteristic of Indrė’s music opened the possibilities for successful international projects, including the acclaimed world music band Merope, collaboration with ethnic musicians from Africa; MaLituanie, and the duo Solo & Indrė. The multi-talented performer can often be seen in folk, jazz, classical, choral, contemporary or alternative music festivals, playing with important bands, and caught in the whirlwind of new ideas.
Indrė Jurgelevičiūtė graduated from the Lithuanian Academy of Music and Theatre and World Music Department of Rotterdam Conservatory. Together with musicians from five different countries she formed a band, Merope, which toured in Europe, India, China and Mexico and recorded three albums on the themes of nature – 9 Days (2012), Amaranthine (2015) and Naktės (2018). In Belgium Indrė is also involved in the alternative jazz projects “Book of Air: Fieldtone and vvolk”, and her work is represented by the art platform “Granvat”.
The sounds of Lithuanian kanklės are subtly matched with traditional African music in Indrė’s projects with a famous musician from Mali, Baba Sissoko (MaLituanie), and a Senegalese kora master, Solo Cissokho. In 2015, the duo Solo & Indrė received spectacular recognition, having won their first award at the renowned international competition “World Music Network Battle of the Bands” and later toured in USA and Europe.
Indrė is also a part of the international early music collective Ratas del Viejo Mundo.
Indrė’s music speaks about human connection with nature and ritual magic in everyday life, and offers the listener a gift of soft melancholy and a quiet joy of being. Uniquely and sensitively expressed through the magic sound of the strings of Indrė’s kanklės, all these emotions once again reveal to us the profound meanings that are common to all world cultures.
