Music of the world

The Republic of Georgia, a small country in the Caucasus mountain range, bridges the Eastern and Western worlds. Its music has been passed on through the oral tradition since time immemorial, the voice its primal instrument. Most commonly sung in three part harmony, Georgian song used to be an integral part of almost every activity, with countless work songs, wedding songs, healing and celebration songs, not to mention a vast repertoire of liturgical songs. Odoïa is a voyage to the soul of harmony singing. Above all, is the fusion of the voices, the sound is sculpted by every heartbeat. This vocal polyphony moves us because it is part of us all, it is anchored in the depths of our being. As we listen, as we sing, we are connecting to our past and our memories to come. Mze Shinameans the “inner sun” in Georgian.
