LIRWAK are intelligent folk-hooligans inspired by the romance of traveling singers and musicians of the early 20th century. They create their own sound combining electronic music with the sounds of folk instruments and lyrics of forgotten songs. They confidently mold together breakbeat with Hutsul flutes, hurdy-gurdy and trembits are mixed with a dubstep.

Each participant works with a range of musical instruments, but since they have only two hands, they have to do different manipulations with sound with the help of samplers and other electronic devices in order to produce live music.
