Georgian polyphony has been existing since the year dot, having passed a long way of development. Now it is a true pearl and treasure not only of the Georgian people, but of the whole humanity. In 2001 UNESCO proclaimed Georgian polyphony an Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity, as to confirm its uniqueness and value for the World culture.
Various regions of Georgia feature their own nuances and specifics of polyphony, and often the place of the origin can be defined by songs. Polyphonic singing is characterized with special technique of vocal input using similar tones and is sung in three parts. One of the participants of our Festival – the folk-group “Chveneburebi” regularly goes on folk expeditions around the regions of Georgia, search for ancient folk song varieties, and then show them to wide audience at the concerts. Our spectators have an opportunity to indulge in the precious atmosphere of Georgian polyphony, filled with authentic culture and unique voices, relax and take a part of sunny energy with them.
