Georgian Polyphonic singing, dancing & documentary film screening
Not everyone's cup of tea who read gig listing on this forum but all the same I thought I'd post it up, you never know.
Polyphony is the art of singing in three or more voices and so three members of Shavnabada will be performing this rare and beautiful sound that has echoed across the regions of Georgia since time began at St Ethelburga's next Sat Oct 1st
Davit Tsintsadze, the artistic director and head of the Patriarch's gate-keeping organisation to preserve authentic Georgian music will compliment the voices of, George Abashidze, supreme singer of the most haunting Georgian sacred song and, Bacho Tsiklauri, who specialises in not only song but traditonal Georgian Dance.
Accompanied by the elegant and engaging Nino Chonkadze a traditonal Georgian Female Dancer, the group accompany themselves in part with the tradtional Georgian musical instrument the Changouri. http://www.youtube.com/user/shavnabada100
Shavnabada Voice Trio are part of a larger 12 strong male voice choir
The concert will be preceeded by a documentary film: Knights of Georgian Chant
The Knights of Georgian Chant tells the story of how one man, inspired by the truth and beauty of Georgian song, dedicated his life to preserving it. English Subtitles.
So! Documentary will be in the first half of the evening. Singing and dancer in 2nd half
Doors open 6.45pm
