In 2023 on May 25-28, the 50th Skamba skamba kankliai will be held in Vilnius

The international folklore festival Skamba skamba kankliai, which will celebrate its half-century anniversary next year, is one of the few festivals of authentic ethnic music held in Europe. During its long existence, it has become an annual indulgence for the fans of folklore from all over Lithuania.
