Music of different genres, bands and styles prevails in Rasa’s creative activities: Latino, pop-rock, jazz, and cabaret.
A lot of songs have been prepared for a performance in each style. The repertoire is supplemented with original songs written especially for and/or by Rasa.
The performer’s life and the style of singing are full of drama and colours. One can feel her intense need to theatricalize music, create emotional and expressive characters. Rasa Kaušiūtė prefers musical and cabaret genres, emotionally vivid and dramatic melodies.
