Dainius Pulauskas Group

Dainius Pulauskas Group

The keyboardist, composer and bandleader Dainius Pulauskas is one of the Lithuanian most prominent jazz artists. Dainius Pulauskas Group was formed in 1996 and instantly became an internationally renowned ambassador of Lithuanian jazz. The group has performed all over Europe, as well as at jazz festivals in China and India, recorded 5 CDs and produced a program with the symphony orchestra. The group's key to success is the artistic excellence of its individual membersand, of course, their music – a most idiosyncratic and vivid version of fusion once described as ‘a forceful pulse of modern jazz’. The group's repertoire consists largely of compositions by its leader, Dainius Pulauskas. Either marked with Nordic austerity, or seething with energy and peppiness, his music invariably displays solid structuring of musical textures and colourful combinations of acoustic and electronic instruments.
