Founded in 2010 by Dmitri Zisl Slepovitch who then had just arrived on American shore from Belarus, Litvakus soon acquired its very own sound thanks to the unique, lost and found Belarusian Jewish repertoire discovered by Zisl over years of his scholarly research. From the very outset, Litvakus has been breaking expectations and stereotypes, without much of cross-genre deviations. Performing at clubs, theaters, JCCs, and festivals, the band has gotten following  in the roots music community, among the club crowd, older people, and young families alike.
