Georgian folk songs get a new lease on life through the sonorous singing of Iberi, a six-person vocal and instrumental ensemble that explores the emotional potential of age-old polyphony and traditional instruments.
Songs reflect Georgian life, even as many Georgians move in cosmopolitan urban worlds, far from the farms, orchards and rural celebrations that birthed the music.
Iberi embrace every aspect of these traditions, including the toasts and feast songs that are intimately entwined with Georgia’s notoriously abundant hospitality, but also the urban folk songs, lullabies, liturgical chants, and historical ballads that still play important roles in everyday moments and grand occasions.
