The Baltics Are Waking Up! (Lithuanian: Bunda jau Baltija, Latvian: Atmostas Baltija, Estonian: Ärgake, Baltimaad) is a trilingual song composed by Boris Reznik for the occasion of the Baltic Way, a large demonstration against the Soviet Union and for independence of the Baltic States in commemoration of the 50th anniversary of the Molotov–Ribbentrop Pact. The song is sometimes called the 'joint anthem of the Baltics'. The Lithuanian text was sung by Žilvinas Bubelis, Latvian by Viktors Zemgals, Estonian by Tarmo Pihlap.[1]
