    Baltic folk, i really like your work and the great baltic culture. My ancestors are from Prussia, from little Lithuania. It's sad that there is nearly nobody who knows obout the roots of the german prussians. Many people think, the teutonic order killed all baltic prussians, but thats false- there were still a lot of them. In the course of colonization, the native population was Germanized, so that the Prusai disappeared as a separate ethnic group by mixing with Germans and Masovians. But they left a lasting influence, linguistically, culturally and ethnically. So it is more true that the Prusai were made Germans than that they were all murdered. To this day, there are many descendants from East Prussia bearing Baltic surnames in germany, but the original cultural heritage of the Prusai is unfortunately lost. The Baltic had always had a problem being absorbed by larger neighbors (Germans, Poles, Russians).

    🔥🔥🔥 Prussians were for the lack of the better word genocided by Teutonic knights, then by French, Slavic (Polish/Russian, etc) conquerers.. This is a reminder to all nations of the world that no nation is permanent, and needs to be defended from outside invaders and corrupt leaders/politicians from within… #BalticPride … #PaganPride … #EuropeanPride … forgive but never forget!!! 😢

    Damn, someone needs to mass-produce shit like this, not enough Lithuanian-sounding folk. Would be nice to hear the songs made "soundtrack-esque"

    annoying is the subconscious nordification of Old Slavic and Old Baltic languages in songs and lowering of voices when they speak these languages – they will behave as if they can not pass these words through their throats fluently, I understand that these are not the first languages of anyone, but I have heard people who speak them fluently and SOFTLY.

    Wow. The REAL Prussians. If you see any other Prussians then they are likely German impostors! Sad this language is no longer spoken but at least people care and try to revive this marvelous language! They should do the same for Polabian 😉

    Aš mokausi lietuvių kalbos ir aš suprantu, žodžiai labai panašūs į lietuvių kalbą. Labai graži daina, bet trumpa.. Labas iš Čekijos 🙂

    Hi, I was wondering if anyone could recommend me some books on Balts or Prussian in particular. Something more academic, not just a light read for a layman.
