Ensemble Adilei and the Chamgeliani Sisters perform traditional Georgian polyphonic singing and chants, and will be visiting LMU as part of their U.S. tour.
Ensemble Adilei performs traditional Georgian polyphonic songs and chants. For the members of Adilei singing is the primary mode of communication with the world: it is more of a lifestyle than a performance practice and is not just relegated to official concerts. They sing every time they gather, wherever that may be.
Sisters Ana and Madona Chamgeliani come from a long lineage of singers from the mountainous province of Svaneti. These women are not only great singers, but also possess deep knowledge of the contexts and traditions that surround the songs they perform.
Reception to follow. Free and open to the public.
