Kitka, in collaboration with the Eristavi Family Winery, is thrilled to present a rare Bay Area folk singing workshop led by the Georgian vocal ensemble Adilei and the Chamgeliani Sisters in the magical, intimate barrel room of the Eristavi Family Winery.
Eristavi is an ultra-premium urban winery located in San Francisco offering a diverse list of California grown varietals produced exclusively by the only Georgian winemaking family in the United States.
Hailing from the Republic of Georgia, Adilei's nine vocalists are internationally acclaimed for their collective creative approach, superior improvisational skills, and a fresh and lively repertoire. Adilei's main passion lies in music from Guria in western Georgia, home to a complex and colorful form of polyphonic singing and a thrilling yodeling tradition.
We are especially excited to present the Chamgeliani Sisters, joining Adilei on their first trip to the US. This stunning duo sings hauntingly beautiful ancient traditional songs from Svaneti, a remote region in the Caucasian highlands.
Learn exciting Georgian folk songs with Adilei and the Chamgeliani Sisters. Singers of all ages, backgrounds, and levels of experience are welcome to experience the joy of Georgian multi-part singing (and yodeling!) during this three hour workshop with these very special guest artists representing the new wave of traditional music from the rich culture of the Caucasus.
Space is limited and advance registration strongly recommended.
