Trio Kavkasia Concert
Start Date: 9/14/2008Start Time: 3:00 PM
End Date: 9/14/2008

Event Description

Trio Kavkasia —three Americans who perform the traditional vocal music of the former Soviet Republic of Georgia— bring to the College the exquisite, ethereal beauty of ancient liturgical music and the striking, earthy exuberance of everyday work songs as well as the fascinating cultural and historical context of Georgian folk traditions. In three CDs, these accomplished musicians and musical scholars have traveled ever further into the heart of Georgian tuning mysteries, with vigorous improvisation. Ted Levin of BBC Music Magazine called Kavkasia’s latest release The Fox and the Lion “lush and resonant,” and The New York Times described its “exotic, beautifully modulated style ... [and] haunting beauty.”
