Zedashe in Minnesota says
Fascinated with the harmonies and sound of Georgian vocal music? Prepare to be blown away by the powerful, haunting harmonies of Georgian vocal music! Always in 3 parts, voices weave in and out in dissonance and independence, creating unexpected and unfamiliar harmonies, but ending in unison or an open fifth. Learn about the history of Georgian music while members of Zedashe teach you songs from this little-known country.

The workshop is open to all singers and held at St. Mary's Orthodox Cathedral, in NE Minneapolis, 9:30-noon. Tickets are available at the door ($20) or in advance at brownpapertickets.com for $18. Students 13-college are $10.

Part of a week-long series of events kicking off their 2015 U.S. Tour, the Zedashe Ensemble hosts this workshop, a dance workshop, and 3 concerts. Learn more about the concerts at www.zedashe.com/tour or www.facebook.com/ZedasheInMinnesota.

THE ZEDASHE ENSEMBLE is based in the medieval fortress city of Sighnaghi, Eastern Georgia, which has been home to the Kiziqian wine growers and warriors since ancient times. Directed by Ketevan Mindorashvili, the current incarnation of the ensemble was founded in the mid 1990s to sing repertoire largely lost during the Communist era. Their repertoire consists of ancient three-part harmony chants from the Orthodox Christian liturgy, folk songs from the Kiziqian region as collected from village song-masters and old publications, and folk dances from the region.
