Jurga


The confidently reflective music of Jurga illustrates that pop songwriting can be intelligent, imaginative, and tasteful. No wonder, then, that her understated singing has instantly won the favor of both Andrius Mamontovas, one of the most influential and ardent opponents of banal pop music in Lithuania, and the alternative-pop-minded youth who admire songstresses like Tracy Chapman, raising the sales of her debut album Golden Meadow above 18000 copies. This popular recognition of the debuting singer was followed by a number of prestigious Lithuanian music awards and collaboration offers by some renowned theatre and film directors. In 2007, the singer has released her second album Instruction, which brought her international recognition: she won the MTV Music Award in the Best Baltic Act nomination. In the same year, Jurga initiated several charity concerts in Afghanistan’s troubled Gor province. Later she collaborated with several Lithuanian alternative pop music artists, including the immensely popular Suicide DJs.
