Iberi Choir are 12 Georgian folk singers and enthusiastic proponents of Georgian polyphonic song, which has been recognized by UNESCO as a masterpiece of “intangible heritage.” Created in 2012, the name of the choir derives from the word “Iberia,” Georgia’s original name. Iberi’s extensive repertoire includes songs from across that country demonstrating different kinds of polyphony, and while the tradition is essentially secular, it includes ancient and rarely performed sacred and pagan songs. Trust Iberi to take Lotus listeners on a remarkable auditory adventure into the past.
Presented in partnership with the IU Institute for European Studies.
