Thread Name: Georgian Music
Subject: RE: Georgian Music
I have a friend coming to visit who sings in a Georgian trio (Kavkasi? my spelling is wretched) I have some sheet music, and could ask Alan about more. Send me a personal message with snail mail and I'll see what I can do. It is lovely stuff. Also, depending on where you are located, there may be choirs. There is one in Toronto. There are folks here in Vermont who sing Georgian music now and then, and it looks like there may be a Village Harmony singing camp IN GEORGIA next summer. (They have a website about such stuff.) After having spent the day singing early music with VERY low alto parts, the whole idea of singing that lovely low Georgian music seems a bit painful, but I do like those harmonies, and also some of the wilder, more complex stuff where they yodel and such.
