Download Free Abarius Ringtones for your Mobile Phone

I finally got bored with my boring, default ringtones in my mobile phone and decided to do something about it. Being a big fan of Gintas’ music I decided to create ringtones from the songs on both his “Gates of Joy” and “Quietness and Trust” albums. After all, who wouldn’t want their mobile phone ringing Gintas’ Herbie Hancock-ish “African Rondo” tune when their friends call? Feel free to download and share these ringtones with your friends while I am able to make them available freely. If you like the albums, both of them are currently available on CDBaby.com, Amazon.com and iTunes.

    Gates of Joy - Gintautas Abarius

    Within the coming weeks, “Gates of Joy” should also propagate to various other distributors including Rhapsody, Spotify, Emusic, Zune, Nokia, Napster and Verizon. “Gates of Joy” will be available as a physical CD at some point in the coming months. Gintas’ fans are encouraged to sign up for the free newsletter on his website at http://Abarius.com to stay informed.

    “Gates of Joy is a song to life, which only music can express. This album is my internal daily diary expressed through the simple language of music via improvised melodies and rhythm.  These are like the first steps in freedom,” wrote Gintas Abarius. Gintas’ music has been compared to jazz artists like Keith Jarrett and Joe Zawinul / Weather Report. Tracks like “Blues for Angela” contain beautiful understated, sensitive melodies reminiscent of Vince Guaraldi or Ramsey Lewis. His approach to music is similar to the Beatles’ – European harmony with an understanding of Chuck Berry, Fats Domino and other rhythm and blues artists.


    The release of “Quietness and Trust” (formerly known in Lithuania as “Psalms of the Later Rain”) is not far behind “Gates of Joy”. The album, originally recorded in Raleigh, NC in 2009, is currently undergoing some additional remastering. The CD artwork is ready so once the master is finished, manufacturing of physical CDs can begin shortly afterward.

    Lithuanian-born Gintas Abarius was a child prodigy – a classically-trained, professional pianist whose many career accomplishments include the founding of the Lithuanian / Russian jazz scene, voted best jazz pianist in Lithuania, grand prix winner at the international music contest in Moscow in 1987 and the composition of several of Lithuanian’s national anthems still actively performed during national holidays and celebrations.

    In 1990, Gintas surprised many when he became one of the first professional musicians in Lithuania to accept Jesus Christ as his Savior. The Christian churches welcomed him with open arms and he was free to use his musical talent to teach, preach and lead worship in different churches throughout the world, including Latvia, Belarus, Ukraine, Armenia, Russia, Kazakhstan, Poland, Germany, England, Israel and the United States.

    Gintas fully understood that the final purpose of his music is to glorify God and restore the human soul and that is what he intended with his music. Before he passed away from throat cancer in August 2010, Gintas resided in the USA with his family and was doing the work of a musical missionary. He also taught young musicians, held international conferences, seminars, mastery classes, and composed and recorded new projects including his jazz group, Baltic Avenue.
