The Iberi Choir performs Georgian polyphonic, a cappella music featuring gorgeously rich, shifting blocks of improvised harmony – sometimes with wild, crowing falsetto soaring over growling basses and clarion tenors. Singing for them isn’t just dramatic and intense stage performance, it’s a social tradition. This type of music is listed in UNESCO’s “Oral and Intangible Masterpieces of Humanity” and is typically sung at the long table of a “Supra,” a feast that’s central to Georgian life. The many courses just keep on coming accompanied by toasts and songs – work songs, carols, hymns, love songs, historical ballads and praise songs from as far back as the 12th century.

“Iberi Choir are not only a choral ensemble but … could be termed an acoustic psychedelic folk band.” – New York Music World Daily
