Ensemble Basiani

The crowning jewel of the country of Georgia's rich musical tradition is men's three-part singing, and the premier practitioners of this art are the members of Ensemble Basiani. Under the auspices of the Tbilisi Holy Trinity Cathedral Choir, these singers—many of whom were raised in families of traditional musicians—perform songs of work, celebration, worship, and more, with extraordinary vocal technique, striking harmonies, and powerful tone. This Georgian singing style that has infused and informed community life for over 1,000 years, yet sounds amazingly modern, has been proclaimed by UNESCO as a Masterpiece of the Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity.

This performance will last approximately 90 minutes with no intermission.
