2019 was declared the year of Samogitia. On this occasion, the young Lithuanian composer Monika Sokaitė created a work for choir and percussion.
"SALVE SAMOGITIA or nine glances at Samogitia" is an occasional composition designed to commemorate the 800 year anniversary of Samogitia. The work is not based on a specific narrative, its essence is not on the story of history, but on a string of characters, each of which is like a glimpse of Samogitia: whether it be folk songs, poetry, the role of the Virgin Mary in the history of the region, and generalizations based on liturgical texts - prayers. The role of Percussion varies from the simple accompaniment to the independent positions, which is like an allusion to the Samogitian independence, character and deep traditions.
