Arma Agharta is the sound performance artist and promoter from Lithuania devoted to improvised and performative music.
Since 2006 he has organized more than a 100 events in Lithuania and did nearly 400 performances all around the world: from Brazil to Philippines, from Siberia to California, from Greenland to Singapore.
His intense and high energy shows span a broad territory between the eruptions of chaotic noise and hypnotic psychedelic ritual to dadaist humour, odd bodily movements, spontaneous improvised games and the voice, detached from meaning and turning into unintelligible glossolalia.

His music is exclusively released on cassette format in various European labels.
