Ensemble Marani - Polyphonies De Géorgie
Music of the world
The Marani ensemble is a men's choir dedicated to traditional Georgian songs since 1993. Georgian polyphony has a flavor that is absolutely unique. This music is capable of intriguing and moving a person hearing it for the first time as easily as someone who knows it well. The repertoire on this album is mainly composed of songs with three parts. The middle and high voices are always sung by soloists. The bass is sung by several singers. To come together and sing these harmonies, be they sacred or profane, is to perpetuate and carve into the present an ancestral culture.
