Merope is a world alternative music band consisting of five musicians each hailing from five different countries. With each member supplying their own artistic background, the result is an unique alchemy of sounds.
Merope’s music has the potential to reach wide audiences owing to it’s sensitivity and subtle combination of elements. Performing ancient songs and traditional music from Lithuania, Spain and India mingled with innovative sounds and modern harmonies, and extending its influence to electronic music, the musical chemistry of the group emerges forcefully during its concerts.

Merope has the ability to involve the audience in a musical journey both actively and affectively, creating in this way a new ritual music for the present day.

Their latest album ‘ 9 Days ‘ was created solely with solar power and recorded in the open lands of souther Spain.

Merope tours in Holland, Spain, Belgium, Germany, Lithuania, Mexico.
