To say that Sakhioba’s recent UK tour created a stir would be a gross understatement. Audiences across the country were thrilled by the ensemble’s dazzling display of ringing harmonies, virtuosic yodelling, and nifty footwork, interspersed with soulful laments and love songs that seemed momentarily to stop the universe in its tracks. -Caroline Bithell, University of Manchester

Dedicated to reconstructing authentic performances of traditional vocal polyphony, dance, and instrumentals from Caucasus Georgia, the Sakhioba Ensemble, which means "sweet singing", debuts their abundant talent in a sweeping tour of the US Northeast. Stay tuned for public workshops and masterclasses given by director Malkhaz Erkvanidze, one of the foremost authorities on the history, practice, and revival of Georgian Orthodox polyphonic chant.
