With the first festival having taken place in 1992, we are celebrating the honorary 25th anniversary this year. Orient is so far the only festival in the Baltics dedicated to authentic extra-European, first and foremost Asian, music and culture. This year’s Orient bears the name ”Ancient Songs from Caravan Routes” indicating that most of the program is either directly or indirectly connected to the musical and cultural traditions from the times when caravans played a vital role in man’s livelyhood. The performers come from Tunisia, Turkey, Turkmenistan, Iran, Armenia, Mongolia, Japan. In addition to concerts the audience can participate in and enjoy exhibitions, lectures, an oriental bazaar and ethnic cuisine.
