Didgori In Toronto: The Concert
Don't miss the Toronto stop of their Canada tour - a rare & exceptional opportunity to witness Georgian polyphony, a millenia-old singing tradition from one of the worlds smallest & oldest surviving cultures.
People who are in the know are super excited. This sort of visit by 6 Georgians singers from the Digori Folk Ensemble has never happened before in Canada. According to the long-time World Music Columnist for The Wholenote magazine, Andrew Timar,
"It will be a huge moment for Georgian music in Canada, an opportunity that happens perhaps once in a lifetime" (Andrew Timar, The Wholenote).
The award winning Didgori ensemble has been performing internationally since 2004 and has toured Russia, Turkey, UK, France, Switzerland, Israel, Poland, Uzbekistan, the Czech Republic and Latvia. Declared an Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO in 2001, the millennial old Georgian polyphonic singing tradition, with its close harmonies and untempered scales, is often described as transformatively visceral. It features 3-part singing in a variety of styles, from hauntingly melismatic lyrical genres to exploding counterpoint.
