The Melbourne Georgian Choir learns and performs traditional polyphonic songs and church chants from the Republic of Georgia, Caucasus. Georgian polyphony is renowned for its powerful sound, unique harmonic language and dissonant chords.
While firmly grounded in community life and the spirit of feast, successful performance of Georgian polyphonies requires reasonably good ear, some experience of group music performance, and last but not least, the desire to explore new musical and cultural territories. Dr Nino Tsitsishvili
