"The development of Lithuanian folk music has been documented about a hundred years. In 1908–1909 the first Lithuanian folk melodies were recorded on wax cylinders by Eduard Wolter, professor at the St. Petersburg University & an eminent scholar of the Lithuanian language, history, archaeology & folklore. In 1911 Lithuanian folk songs were recorded by another famous specialist in Lithuanian philology professor at the Helsinki University Aukusti Robert Niemi (his cylinders are stored in Helsinki)." - The Institute of Lithuanian Literature & Folklore.
