Polyphonies of Georgia

Ensemble Basini. George Donadze, conductor

Orthodox liturgy and popular Georgian polyphonic music

The Ensemble Basiani performs some of the most characteristic works of Georgian polyphony. On the one hand, the unique repertoire linked to the Georgian Orthodox Church allows us to appreciate the stylistic differences between the different monasteries in the country. On the other hand, different profane songs (dances, banquet songs, work songs, love songs...) show the diversity and originality of Georgian polyphonies.
