Product Description & Reviews

In 15 years, we have never signed a group as a result of hearing a demo sent in the mail. But when this arrived, we thought, ''Is this Phillip Glass or some group of genius, avant guarde vocalists?!'' We were astonished to find that this was not new music at all but 1000-year-old songs sung by farmers from the Caucaus Mountains in Georgia! Performed by three music students from Yale, who, upon first hearing a Georgian choir, abandoned their studies and travelled to Georgia to learn this style, Trio Kavkasia has become the most renowned group performing this extraordinary repertoire. The Georgian song's three voice parts are filled with unexpected chords, beating dissonances and ringing unison tones creating a rich texture that doesn't follow Western rules of harmony or melody. Traditionally sung while wielding the plow, encamped on the battlefield, or imbibing wine during a wedding toast, this extraordinary music dates back to at least the 10th century and continues to thrive at local banquets and private gatherings. Here the renowned Trio Kavkasia presents traditional songs from cities and hamlets across Georgia, in styles ranging from wedding and work songs tocarols and hymns. This release is lavishly packaged with a slipcase and 20-page booklet.
