Recording session @ Big Jelly Studios May 13th, 2015
Hey, friends! As you probably already mentioned we haven’t been so active on the stage these past months – that’s because we had loads of work in the rehearsal studio where our songs were taking some new shape.
We are happy to announce that now is the time for a runaway recording session which will be a brand new experience for us. New adventures coming up – let’s hope this leads us to the second album! Ramsgate here we come!
MOE goes Version Excursion November 30th, 2014
Every reggae band should have dub versions of their tunes. It’s the nature of reggae music. Ministry of Echology, the only active reggae group in Lithuania, is no exception. Their debut album was released in early 2014 and later that year Dubartis comes up with a follow up album of alternate versions.
Version Excursion is an album full of dubs, versions and interpretations of songs by Ministry of Echology made by local artists and friends from abroad. Listen!
The Baltic Way 25 August 22nd, 2014
The Baltic Way (also Chain of Freedom) was a peaceful demonstration that occurred on August 23, 1989. Approximately two million people joined their hands to form a human chain spanning over 600 kilometres across the three Baltic states – Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania.
We are glad to participate in the 25th anniversary of this event, which will take place on 23rd of August, 2014 in the Cathedral Square of Vilnius. We will play a concert alongside with fellow musicians Pilnatys, Garbanotas Bosistas, Jazzu, Golden Parazyth, The Sound Poets (Latvia) and Odd Hugo (Estonia). On this occasion Ministry of Echology will present a new song with the lyrics by Lithuanian poet Jonas Žemkalnis. Reggae style! Let’s come together!
