shishi is a Vilnius based Lithuanian power girl trio, playing rap / trash / lo-fi / surf / soul music blend with a childish joy and feminine energy. Dominyka Kriščiūnaitė, Elena Neniškytė and Giedrė Nalivaikaitė, known from other alternative Lithuanian bands, such as „Ministry of Echology“, „Umiko“, „Kotori“, „Homechestra“, „Elle G“, joined their musical forces to create something fresh in alternative Lithuanian scene. In September 2018 shishi released their debut album „NA x 80”.
Band’s name was chosen accidentally and not. shishi means a Chinese guardian lion (also deer or dog) with magical power to repel evil spirits. And so is shishi band – ready to protect your ears from misery every time they come up on stage.
