Posted

Who are they?

It all started in 2003 – Jurgis Didžiulis, a Colombian-born musician, found himself immersed in club scene of Lithuania, homeland of his grandparents. He never looked back. Mixing Latin rhythms, funk energy and "don't give a damn“ attitude of punk, InCulto was destined to become an irresistible good fun recipe – full of vigour and with a touch of quirkiness.

Mainstream success was imminent. Seven years down the line, InCulto boasts two well-received albums, a number of Lithuanian music awards, more than 500 gigs not only in Lithuania, but also the USA, United Kingdom, Poland ant other territories – ranging from intimate shows for 100 fans to entertaining thousands of punters during big open air performances.

In 2006, the band was nominated by MTV Europe for Best Baltic Act award. InCulto has become a household name in Lithuania. And Jurgis went even further, proving he's no one trick pony by inventing a successful electro-rock side project TWNKL and performing role of Judas at big scale Lithuanian arena production of Jesus Christ Superstar.

What the fans thought?

"From the first time I heard this song I thought this will rock in Oslo!" said Gary from Ireland.  "Perfect song, it's fresh and danceable!" said Mustafa G. Karahan from Turkey.
