Description

Double LP „Broliai”

The album of the famous Lithuanian rock band, “Skylė”, “Broliai”/“Brothers” is the tribute to those who left for the forests to defend their land and freedom and remained there forever. The blood of those victorious dead nourished the seed of freedom which finally flowered after many long years.

“Forest brothers” – that's how Lithuanians call those who started their own war in the forests of the country at the end of World War II. Those men and women launched a massive guerilla war against local traitors and the Soviet army, which occupied Lithuania, taking the place of Nazi Germany, and starting its own repressions and half-century long Soviet occupation. The war between the Soviets and the well organized and united army of the Lithuanian Freedom Fight Movement, with all the country as its battlefield, was one of the longest and fiercest movements of national armed resistance after WWII in Europe. The most active phase lasted about 9 years – from 1944 to 1953, claiming the lives of more than twenty thousand freedom fighters. But the last man with a gun in his hand fell only in 1965. He and all those who died and survived passed on the torch of freedom for the unarmed resistance movement which never faded in all the years until the restoration of Independence in 1990.

This album “Broliai”, released in 2010, was inspired by the authentic “Diary of a partisan” by one of the leaders of the partisans, Lionginas Baliukevičius-Dzūkas, who fell in battle in 1950. The album is dedicated to the memory of this war and to those who fought and died for the dignity and freedom of the country. The album enjoyed great popularity, especially among a young audience, was awarded national awards, and was praised by critics both for its powerful revitalization of the legacy of the “forest brothers”, and for giving this legacy the inspiring language of universal and eternal human realities – Love, Freedom, Hope, Life, Sacrifice, and Death. The original songs of the band are enriched with fragments of lyrics of the songs of the partisans, combined with motifs of Lithuanian folk songs, poetry, and mythology. Thus the band emphasizes the symbolic connection of times, embedding this cruel and dark fight, in the context of the long history of Lithuania and the traditions of the nation.  That struggle is an integral part of the memory and identity of the Lithuanian people.

Dedikacija

Už medžiais pavirtusius.
Už žemę, kurioj mes visi prasidėjom.
Skiriame 1944 – 1953 m. Lietuvos laisvės kovų dalyviams atminti.

Kai kurios dainos skirtos realiems asmenims – „Klajūnė“ – partizanei Zofijai Striogaitei-Žilienei, „Paskutinė kulka“ – Lionginui Baliukevičiui – Dzūkui, kurio išlikęs dienoraštis atskleidė mūsų kartai skausmingą partizano vidinį pasaulį. Yra dainų, kurios remiasi senų karinių sutartinių dvasia, o taip pat sukurtų pagal autentišką partizanišką lyriką. Muzikiniame audinyje vyrauja roko stilistika, palikdama erdvės įsiterpti kanklėms, akordeonui, lumzdeliui...

For the land from which we all have sprung and for those who became the forest.
Dedicated to commemorate participants in the Lithuanian struggle for freedom between 1944 and 1953.
