“World-music fans won’t want to miss this group, which specializes in extraordinary male harmonizing and makes Georgian vocal music thrilling and spiritually moving” —Los Angeles Times
It’s the music of the fabled land where Jason and the Argonauts traveled in search of the Golden Fleece, and home of Medea, the sorceress. Perhaps that's why Georgian singing has such a primal appeal that speaks to our hearts and souls. Keeping the flame of this ancient tradition alive are the male vocalists of Ensemble Basiani, who specialize in the haunting complex harmonies that date back centuries. This rich heritage of folk and work songs, monastic chants, religious hymns, and epic ballads of the Republic of Georgia will come to glorious life in the acoustics of Bing.
The program will be performed without an intermission.
