#561 Lithuania 12/01/07

Leonardas sent me this beautiful FDC from Lithuania, thank you! It was issued and posted in Vilnius on January 7, 2012.

The cover and stamps commemorate some Lithuanian folk musical instruments: wooden whistles, a trumpet made of alder bark, and a Baltic zither (kanklės). A summary of Baltic folk music can be found at worldmusic.net.
