Simona Smirnova is a charming Lithuanian performer and composer who plays an authentic Lithuanian folk zither, called kanklės.
Simona is the only kanklės player in the United States, and she presents this unique instrument across the globe in theaters, jazz clubs, communities
and festivals. Simona is a fixture in the New York live scene with her quartet when she’s not touring the world, including Australia, New Zealand and Europe.
Always on the road, always charming and smiling, Simona is a true artistic soul that effervescently represents diversity and passion for arts.
