Folk Group

Folk group Jorė was founded in 1988 when the feeling of national identity was very intense making people sincerely interested in their own cultural traditions. In 1991, Jorė was reborn again when new members came who are still active participants of Jorė.

The program of the group includes all types of ritual songs and dances (Advent, Spring and Summer cycles). The most impressive and different each time are the programs of All Saints' Day and Mother's Day. Jorė's repertoire consists of dances and games from all Lithuania's regions.
